A GLOBAL search is underway for the new head of the Hunter Medical Research Institute. 

Professor Michael Nilsson will become the Global Innovation Chair with the Centre of Innovative Technologies in Rehabilitation Settings (CITRS) at the University of Newcastle early next year, a role he said offered “the right new challenge”. 

Research institute chairman Kyle Loades said the board would aim to replicate the success it had in 2011 finding a leader of Professor Nilsson’s calibre.
