Physiotherapist and renowned pain specialist, the University of South Australia’s Professor Lorimer Moseley has been announced as a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences (AAHMS) today.
The AAHMS welcomed 49 new Fellows in total who have all displayed outstanding leadership and contributions to health and medical science in Australia.
Prof Moseley has made pivotal contributions to the understanding of persistent pain disorders and the role of brain processes in the causes of conditions and their treatments, while also generating new fields of research and clinical practice.
He has developed a specific treatment which targets disrupted brain processes in chronic pain that is now recommended in clinical guidelines internationally and considered best practice, while his contributions to the field have been recognised by awards and honours on every continent.
Prof Moseley is one of three South Australians to be inducted and the only recipient from UniSA.
The new Fellows from all over Australian represent many disciplines within the health and medical sciences with contributions to a diverse range of clinical and research areas.
The group will be inducted at the Academy’s third Annual Scientific Meeting at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) later this year.
In total the academy now has 321 Fellows.
