MACH Announces new Interim Executive Director, Prof David Story
On behalf of the MACH Council it gives me great pleasure to announce that Professor David Story will be taking up the post of Interim Executive Director of the Melbourne Academic Centre for Health, starting 26 November 2018.
David has agreed to take on this role until a permanent appointment can be made early to mid 2019. David takes over from Professor Cheryl Jones who has led the MACH throughout 2018 with great proficiency.
David is Professor and Foundation Chair of Anaesthesia at the University of Melbourne; Deputy Director, and Head of Anaesthesia, Perioperative and Pain Medicine Unit Program at the Centre for Integrated Critical Care; and Director of the Melbourne Clinical and Translational Sciences (MCATS) research support platform. He is also a senior clinical anaesthetist at Austin Health.
In addition, David has been heavily involved with the MACH programs involving clinical trials, ageing and aged care, data, and health services research – key priorities for the MACH partners.
We are indebted to David for taking this role on at such short notice and look forward to working with him over the coming months to continue the success of the MACH.
Please join me in welcoming David to the role.
