Cameron Grant

Our annual inaugural lecture series provide a way for our faculty to celebrate and recognise the mark of distinction conferred by the University when it awards the title of professor.

Join us to celebrate the inaugural lecture of Professor Cameron Grant.


'Our children are the treasures of tomorrow’

How we care for our children shapes their future and our future as a nation. Keeping children healthy and providing excellent healthcare to them is not a passive process, is not necessarily easy and does not always align well with our own lives or our model of health care delivery. What differences can a paediatrician make to our children’s future?



Dr. Cameron Grant is Professor, Head-Department of Paediatrics: Child and Youth Health, and Associate Director of the Centre for Longitudinal Research – He Ara ki Mua at the University of Auckland. He is a general paediatrician at Starship Children’s Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand.

Professor Grant graduated MBChB from the University of Otago and PhD from the University of Auckland.  He completed postgraduate paediatric training in Auckland and in the United States. 

Professor Grant's teaching skills are recognised with faculty and university teaching awards including a University of Auckland Teaching Excellence Award for sustained excellence in teaching. 

His research focusses on child health problems that are preventable by immunisation or improved nutrition. 


Invite open to FMHS staff and students

Date: Wednesday 19 July, 5.30-7pm

Venue: (New venue) AMRF Lecture Theatre 505-011, Grafton Campus
