The 2022 Eureka Prize winners were announced on Wednesday 31 August during a live, broadcast event. Hosted by Bernie Hobbs, the Award Ceremony also featured panel discussions with multi-award-winning journalist Rae Johnston and Director of the Australian Museum Research Institute, Professor Kris Helgen.
Ground-breaking research into how diets impact the environment, new technology that will revolutionise cancer diagnosis and discoveries improving the treatment of sexually transmitted infections were among the winners.
From trailblazers in sustainable packaging, robotic imaging and Motor Neuron Disease research, the 15 individuals and teams recognised show the very deep breadth of talent we have representing Australia on the world stage.
Their achievements demonstrate that we have the resources and ideas – ranging from 3D printing to nanotechnology and synthetic biology – to build a world that will help sustain us for the future.
