Robert (Bob) Vink completed his BSc (Hons) and PhD at Griffith University, and his postdoctoral studies at the University of California, San Francisco. He then returned to Australia as a Queen Elizabeth II Fellow at James Cook University where he became an academic staff member. In 2001, he joined the Department of Pathology at the University of Adelaide and was subsequently appointed as the NRF Chair of Neurosurgical Research and Head of the School of Medical Sciences. In 2014 Bob joined the University of South Australia as the Pro Vice-Chancellor and Vice President: Health Sciences. His research has focused on the recognition of secondary injury factors following CNS injury, and the development of novel pharmacotherapies that improve outcome. His recent focus has been on the role of neurogenic inflammation in acute and chronic CNS injury, particularly in oedema, elevated ICP and neurodegeneration. Bob has been awarded the Jamieson Lecture and medal and the Eccles Lecture and medal from the Neurosurgical Society of Australasia and the Australasian Neuroscience Society. In 2012, he was awarded a DSc (Adelaide) for his international contributions to neurotrauma and in 2015 was named as a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences.
