The biennial NHMRC Ethics Award recognises Australians for their outstanding contributions to promoting and upholding the highest ethical standards in health and medical research and acknowledges Nik’s significant contributions at a national and international level.
On receiving the award Nik said, “Good ethical practice is at the heart of effective health and medical research. Our patients and community rightly expect us to uphold the highest standards in both the quality of our research and the way we conduct it. Rather than seeing ethics as a matter of compliance I have worked to integrate it into the fabric of good research practice so that our studies are ethical by their very design. This award is a huge vindication of that approach and I look forward to continuing this in my work at the Epworth and with all of our collaborators.”
