The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE)  has elected Professor Peter Langridge, University of Adelaide, among 25 new Fellows for 2016.

Academy Fellows are drawn from the areas of applied physical science and technology, applied biological science and technology, engineering and management, and development and leadership. They are some of the most influential names in technological sciences and engineering. They’re an important group of people – one that’s been responsible for a number of key technological advancements over the past 40 years.

Professor Langridge’s research on molecular genetics has been translated into breeding technologies that are widely applied in public and private cereal crop improvement programs around the world. He has published six patents and more than 280 papers in refereed international journals. His papers have been cited more than 15,000 times. The impact of his work has been recognised through invitations to join editorial boards, to speak at scientific meetings, and to join many international science advisory committees, review panels and boards.

A previous South Australian Scientist of the Year (2011), Professor Langridge is Emeritus Professor in the area of plant genetics, genomics and breeding with the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine here at the Waite Campus. Congratulations on this significant achievement.
