We were extremely proud to have members of our staff recognised for their services to New Zealand in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.

Professor Peter Gilling in the School of Medicine was named a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to urology.

Associate Professor Robert Jacobs from the Department of Optometry and Vision Science was named a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to optometry and education.
