Our Patron

David de Kretser 2

Camcare is delighted that Professor David de Kretser AC is our patron.

On 21 March 2014 we hosted a special event in the Boroondara Council offices to introduce our Patron, Prof David de Kretser AC, and launch our new strategic plan to an audience of our key stakeholders.

Professor de Kretser is a reproductive endocrinologist with appointments at Monash University of Professor of Anatomy, the founding Director of the Monash Institute of Medical Research and Associate Dean for Biotechnology Development. He is a Sir John Monash Distinguished Professor and served as the Governor of Victoria from 2006 to 2011. He is a Companion of the Order of Australia and continues his research at Monash University. He is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering. He has served as the President of the International Society of Andrology. His research interests include defining the causes of male infertility, the hormonal regulation of reproduction and novel mechanisms influencing inflammatory and fibrotic responses. In 2000 he initiated a highly successful program of community and professional education in male reproductive health called Andrology Australia.

We look forward to working with David to continue the growth and development of Camcare as we strive to achieve our vision of a fair and inclusive community.
