New Director of AWSC

The Board of the Animal Welfare Science Centre (AWSC) is pleased to announce that Professor Andrew Fisher has accepted its invitation to become Director of the AWSC and is confident that the AWSC will continue to thrive and grow in esteem as Andrew drives the Centre's RD&E activities over the next period.

Former AWSC Director Professor Paul Hemsworth will maintain his research and teaching contributions within the AWSC and said that the Centre “will benefit from a new pair of hands at the wheel". As Director of the Centre since its inception in 1997, Paul has been responsible for leading and coordinating the overall allocated academic and research resources of the partner organizations in the Centre. Paul has a long academic track record with over 450 publications. He is in the top 1 per cent of scientists for individual impact in Plant and Animal Science according to Web of Science.

The AWSC Board recognises Prof Hemsworth’s significant contribution to the Centre and said he leaves “huge shoes to fill,” but noted that Andrew is a fitting successor who brings decades of international experience in animal welfare and research leadership to the role.
