Professor Wade has been at CSU and a Graham Centre member for the past 9 years and was farewelled by friends and colleagues at morning tea on Friday 19 August, wishing him the best for his retirement. He hails from Queensland where he graduated from the University of Queensland with a BAgrSc (Hons) in Crop Agronomy before completing a PhD in Crop Science at the University of Western Australia.
Professor Wade has a long and distinguished research background in agronomy and crop physiology, working both within Australia and internationally. Prior to joining CSU, he was GRDC Chair in Crop Agronomy at the University of Western Australia for 5 years.
A key highlight during his time at CSU and the Graham Centre was being part of the team that developed and implemented the building of the National Life Sciences Hub. We wish Len all the best in his retirement.
