Statement on the appointment of Professor Attila Brungs as VC of UNSW Sydney

The leadership group and the entire team at The George Institute for Global Health would like to offer our congratulations to Professor Attila Brungs on his appointment as President and Vice Chancellor of UNSW Sydney. With Professor Brung’s stellar reputation in academia, industry and organisational leadership, we welcome this appointment that promises an exciting future ahead for our key academic partner.  

The Institute was proud to join the UNSW family four years ago and we have had an extremely enjoyable and productive relationship with outgoing Vice Chancellor Professor Ian Jacobs since that time.

As a leading global health and medical research institute with a strong presence in Australia and other locations around the world, we remain proud to partner with and support the work of UNSW Sydney. We look forward to working with Professor Brungs and his team to continue this valuable partnership.
