Biography
  • Frank Fenner, microbiologist and virologist, was born in Ballarat, Vic. on Dec. 21, 1914, graduating in medicine and surgery at the University of Adelaide. After serving in the Australian Army Medical Corps from 1940-46, he undertook research in microbiology in Melbourne and New York before being appointed as Foundation Professor of Microbiology, Australian National University from 1949-1967. He was prominent in developing the myxamatosis virus as a biological control for rabbits. He campaigned for the need to establish an international centre for virology research resulting in his appointment as Director of the ANU's John Curtin School for Medical Research in 1967-73.
  • His identification and study of the mousepox virus contributed to the eradication of human smallpox and became a senior advisor to the World Health Organization Global Commission for Certification of Smallpox Eradication eventually sharing the 1988 Japan Prize for his role. From 1973-79 he was Director of the ANU's Centre for Resources and Environmental Studies where he pursued preventive medicine and ecological education.
