  • Associate Professor Allison Milner

    The University of Melbourne has established a Fellowship to honour the legacy of Associate Professor Allison Milner who was killed in a tragic accident at Princes Park in Carlton in August.

    Associate Professor Milner, 36, was Deputy Head of the Disability and Health Unit at the Centre for Health Equity at the University and was highly regarded for her research in the field of suicide prevention.

    In her honour, the University has established the ‘Allison Milner Early Career Research Fellowship’ in public health to fund a talented early career researcher to develop a program of research to reduce inequities in line with Associate Professor Milner’s values and interests.

    The Fellow will demonstrate the values and qualities that she emulated, including a commitment to social justice, valuing of diversity and inclusion in the workplace and collaborative team-based research that includes academics, government and non-government organisations and advocates.
