Each one has made outstanding contributions to the biomedical community and the health of our society as a whole and I am thrilled to see their efforts recognised in this way. I am also pleased to see the Honours recognise so many for their amazing efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, not just academics and clinicians like our Fellows, but everyone who has supported their communities throughout this challenging year.”
