Collaboration to address stillbirth in Australia and New Zealand

The late Professor Geoffrey Donald Thorburn, BSc (Med), MD BS, FRACP, FAA, AO, had a long and illustrious career as a research scientist primarily working in the area of fetal physiology. He is recognised both nationally and internationally as one of the founders of contemporary fetal physiology, and the growth and development of this scientific discipline is due in no small part to his pioneering work in the 1960s and his continuing contributions over the subsequent three decades. It is primarily through his efforts that the study of fetal physiology has been advanced at an institutional level, and specifically by the establishment of the Australian Perinatal Society, of which he was the inaugural President. In 1997, in honour and recognition of the contributions made to the Society by him, the Society's Visiting Professor Program was renamed "The Professor Geoffrey Thorburn Visiting Professorship" and in 2015 renamed the Professor Geoffrey Thorburn Visting Lecture Series.
