Noel was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation in April 2013. He has a PhD in pharmacology/medicinal chemistry from the University of Sydney. His work experience includes positions in research, research translation, commercialisation, start-up companies, biotechnology and philanthropy. In the early 90’s his patented discoveries in type II diabetes led to a commercial partnership where he lead a team of researchers at the University of Sydney and for which he was presented the Royal Australian Chemical Institute’s Biota Award for Medicinal Chemistry. Noel then moved into industry where he held senior management positions in research and business development before becoming the CEO of a number of listed (ASX) and unlisted biotechnology/health related companies. In 2009, Noel’s attention turned to philanthropy where he led the establishment of Research Australia’s successful philanthropy program as the Director of Philanthropy. He was a member of the Federal Government’s Advisory Council for Intellectual Property (ACIP) from 2009-2014, advising the Federal Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research and was Chair of the ACIP review into collaborations between publicly funded research organisations and industry. The Minister released this report in late 2012.   Keynote Presentation: Supporting Medical Research: Intent, Measurement & Impact Community expectations relating to the support of medical research may differ to those of major funding systems, institutions and researchers.  Access to philanthropic funding is changing with an increasing expectation around outcomes and impact rather than outputs and traditional academic measures.  Philanthropy can also be a barometer reflecting views within the wider community.  In an increasingly connected world where views and opinions are more easily and widely expressed it is important to consider opportunities, risks and drivers for new and changing funding streams.
