Event Details

Emeritus Professor Mark Liveris

Emeritus Professor Mark Liveris was educated at Perth Modern School and the University of
Western Australia where he completed his PhD in organic chemistry. His early career (1960-1970)
was in teaching and research, the latter including post-doctoral research as a Fellow with the
National Research Council of Canada. He was in turn inaugural Head of the Department of
Chemistry (1967-1969), Assistant Director (Applied Science) (1969-1974) and Foundation Dean of
Health Sciences (1974-1986) at the Western Australian Institute of Technology, now Curtin

During his appointment as Assistant Director (Applied Science), Professor Liveris used his
knowledge, experience, skills and extensive network of local, national and international colleagues
to guide the Faculty’s development to its present formidable presence in the health field. One of
his major contributions to Australian health workforce training has been his understanding of the
roles played by allied health professionals and nurses in the health care system and his insistance,
at all levels of influence, on recognition of the importance of these roles, particularly in academic
teaching, learning, research and resource allocation.

He was appointed to the position of Deputy Vice Chancellor (Health Sciences) in 1987 and he held
the prime responsibility for the academic direction and administration of the largest health sciences
endeavour of any tertiary institution in Australia. Additionally, he was Chairman of the Board of
Management at Royal Perth Hospital and its Research Foundation, Chairman of the State Health
Advisory Network, immediate Past President and Member of Council of the Cancer Foundation of
WA, and immediate Past President of the Australian Hospital Association. He holds executive
office in a number of health related professional bodies and is a member of Boards of several
medical research institutions.

Honour and awards accorded him include the OBE, WHO Fellow, WA Citizen of the Year
(Professions Category) in 1985 and in 1986 he was appointed a Kellog International Fellow in
Health, the sole Australian among 30 Fellows from 18 countries. In 1987 he was invited to serve
on the Visiting Board of the University of Colorado’s New Centre for Human Caring. He was a
member of the Public Health Research and Develpoment Committee of the National Health and
Medical Research Council from 1987-1993 and a member of the Council’s Research Strategy
Committee for the 1993-95 Triennium.

He was appointed an Honorary Professor at the Beijing Medical University with which he has had a
long association and Clinical Professor, School of Public Health, University of Hawaii. In
recognition of his and the Faculty’s international activities, Professor Liveris is a Past President of
the Asia-Pacific Academic Consortium for Public Health, an international association of 42
schools/institutes on public and/or community health from 16 countries in the region.

Professor Liveris’ achievements and the development of the Faculty of Health Sciences are
inextricably linked. His vision of a robust, evolving institution the Faculty is today has driven the
professional and community service necessary to consolidate the Faculty’s prestigious position in
health sciences. That same vision has encouraged the flexibility needed to identify professional,
workplace and consumer need, and strategically ensure the introduction of responsive and
innovative learning and research programs. The Mark Liveris Health Sciences Research Student
Seminar celebrates the shared achievements of the Faculty of Health Sciences and of its first
Deputy Vice-Chancellor.
