k_wegenerThe Ramsay Fellowship was established in 2008 with a significant bequest from the Ramsay family, founders of the Kiwi Polish Company (later Kiwi International), the famous shoe polish manufacturers.

Hamish Ramsay fulfilled his late stepmother’s wish to help advance scientific research by pledging funds for four-year Ramsay Fellowships.

Dr Kate Wegener, currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, will be the first of the Ramsay Fellows and eventually the Fellowship will support four independent research fellows.

The Faculty of Sciences welcomes Dr Wegener back to Adelaide, and wishes her every success as she undertakes her research!

For more details about Dr Wegener’s research focuses, please view her story in Lumen.
