Vale Professor Chris Del Mar AM

Chris first came to the University in 2004 as Dean of Health Sciences and Medicine and led the establishment of Bond's Medical Program. Chris was a remarkable inspiration to his colleagues as a valued contributor to both research and teaching - his research indeed had a global impact! It was evident from the heartfelt words and hilarious anecdotes shared at his memorial service held on campus, 19 March 2022, that Chris was truly admired and loved by all. Vale Chris Del Mar AM, you will be deeply missed.

In honour of Chris’ contribution to the university and faculty, an academic medal has been established.
