Australia Post has celebrated the institute’s centenary with the release of a stamp issue to celebrate 100 years of discoveries.

The issue featured researcher Dr Tracy Putoczki on the 70-cent stamp, a first day cover, sheetlet pack, maxicard and a prestige booklet, alongside images relating to current research.

National honour

Institute director Professor Doug Hilton said he was thrilled Australia Post had honoured the institute. “The centenary is an opportunity to reflect on the institute’s significant past, and look ahead to the next 100 years of discoveries. As we continue to unravel the mysteries of the body and disease, we hope to benefit the lives of many more people.”

Previous Australia Post stamp issues have featured some of the institute’s most influential researchers including Sir Frank Macfarlane Burnet, Professor Donald Metcalf and Sir Gustav Nossal.

The stamp issue can be purchased from post offices, via mail order on 1800 331 794 and online at www.auspost.com.au.
