Professor Sandra Eades

Sandra Eades is a Noongar woman with family from the Minang and Goreng mobs in south-west Western Australia who has made pioneering contributions to the epidemiology of Aboriginal child health throughout her career.

Beginning as a GP, she went on to become the first Aboriginal medical doctor to be awarded a PhD for her studies on the causal pathways and determinants of health among Aboriginal infants in the first year of life. Through her many senior roles, most recently as Dean at Curtin University Medical School and board member of the Burnet Institute, Sandra brings an exceptional track record as one of Australia’s most significant Indigenous health leaders.

Returning to the University of Melbourne in 2022,  she was appointed the Rowden White Chair and Associate Dean, Indigenous for the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.
