DST's Felicia Pradera has been awarded a Research Collaboration Award by the Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC) for her leadership of the DMTC Medical Countermeasures program.

Felicia was presented with her award at DMTC's Annual Conference Dinner at the National Gallery in Canberra by Corporal Daniel Keighran VC.

DMTC Chief Executive Officer Dr Mark Hodge congratulated Felicia on her award.

“Felicia has made a massive contribution to the success of this program,” he said. “In fact, it’s not over-stating it to suggest that the program may not have even been running today without her leadership and expert oversight.

“Felicia is a valued member of the DMTC team and really has exemplified our commitment to achieving the very best outcomes for the Australian Defence Force, while also facilitating industry and supply chain development in this country.”

The DMTC Research Collaboration Award recognises an individual who embodies the spirit of collaboration.
