It is with great pleasure that we announce that Dr Michael Dow has won The Institute of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys of Australia (IPTA) Institute Prize for 2018.
The Institute Prize is one of IPTA’s most prestigious awards with a long and distinguished history. It is awarded to a newly qualified candidate who has shown excellence in academic subjects and has best demonstrated that they have the potential to contribute substantially to the profession.
Michael joined Madderns in February 2013 after working as a research scientist in Australia and the United States. He studied at the University of Adelaide where he obtained a PhD in plant biotechnology, and previously at Flinders University where he obtained a Bachelor of Biotechnology with first class honours.
Michael is no stranger to success having been awarded a Dean’s Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence from the University of Adelaide and receiving the University Medal for his academic achievements at Flinders University.
We are proud of Michael’s latest achievement, which we believe has resulted from Michael’s outstanding work and has been facilitated by the environment in which Madderns provides for its trainees’ development.
