Regional Champions

The Academy's network of Regional Champions build on the sense of collegiality across the Fellowship.

Champions  undertake activities in their area that increase connectivity amongst Fellows, raise awareness of the Academy’s work amongst the broader biomedical community, and facilitate engagement between the Academy and the Fellowship.
