Associate Professor Paul Craft has been acknowledged for his dedication and commitment to oncology and professional organisations, in the Australia Day Honours list, awarded a Member of the Order of Australia (AM).
Professor Craft has a special interest in sarcoma, and forms part of the ACT region’s Sarcoma Multidisciplinary Team.
Since 1988 Professor Craft has contributed significantly to Australian medical committees, councils and organisations including the ACT Health Research Ethics Committee, ACT Cancer Council, Royal Australian College of Physicians, and the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia.
Today, we sadly farewelled (Dr) Matt Fisher at a beautiful service in Canberra. Matt tragically lost his life to sarcoma on January 8.
Professor Craft was Matt’s oncologist and there was never any doubt how highly Matt regarded this very special man.
Matt was a scientist and understood well the hard work, experience and dedication it takes to make a significant footprint in a gruelling speciality such as oncology.
From all at the Cooper Rice-Brading Foundation and the sarcoma community, we extend our heartiest congratulations to Professor Craft, AM, and our deepest gratitude for the profound difference he makes in the lives of cancer patients.
