As well as being a leader in her clinical endocrinology role at Monash Health, including as past Head of Monash Diabetes, Professor Teede’s illustrious 20-year academic career has led her to holding numerous leadership roles in healthcare, research and policy.

A strong advocate for women in healthcare and research, Professor Teede has dedicated much of her academic and clinical career to women’s health and manages her own research portfolio focussing on women’s endocrine health across the lifespan, as well as implementation science, the science of driving uptake of evidence-based knowledge in medical practice.
Monash Health would like to congratulate Professor Teede on this fantastic achievement.
