Former Chancellor and Clinical Professor of Medicine Alex Cohen has been remembered by his family, friends, former students and colleagues as a compassionate, hard-working and popular man with a great sense of humour.
Professor Cohen was awarded the Australian Medical Association (WA) Award in 2013 for his outstanding contribution to diabetes research in Western Australia. He also received an Order of Australia medal in 1995 for his efforts in improving diabetes research and care in the State.
Professor Cohen was also a great friend of the Convocation of UWA. We offer our sincere condolences to his family and to all those whose lives were touched by this remarkable man.
