Vale Professor George Collins

A message from DMTC CEO, Dr. Mark Hodge

I am deeply saddened to convey the news that Professor George Collins passed away suddenly today.

George was the DVC-Research at Swinburne University, and was a frequent and welcome visitor to DMTC headquarters, just up the stairs from his office. Prior to his role at Swinburne, he was CEO of CAST CRC and head of the Materials Institute at ANSTO, both key DMTC partners. He was in fact, a foundation Director of DMTC and his positive, proactive attitude in all these and many other roles was an example and driving force to the entire DMTC community.

George was a great and dear friend to many of us personally and will be missed by so many people.

Of course his loss will be felt most keenly by his wife, children and family, and on behalf of the DMTC community, I pass on our sincere condolences at this sad time.

Mark Hodge
