Australian National University
2002 - Prime Minister's Prize for Science, Australia For eradication of smallpox, and the trialling and release of the rabbit myxoma virus
1988 - Japan Prize for the eradication of Smallpox.
1977 - Member of the National Academy of Sciences
1954 - Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science
His primary scientific interests are in Virology, Virus, Myxomatosis, Myxoma virus and Smallpox. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Vaccinia, Cowpox, Pathogenicity and Immunology. The Cowpox study combines topics in areas such as Smallpox virus, Monkeypox, Vaccinia immune globulin and Microbiology.
His Virus research focuses on Nomenclature and how it relates to Poliovirus. Frank Fenner focuses mostly in the field of Myxomatosis, narrowing it down to matters related to European rabbit and, in some cases, Biological pest control and Vertebrate. He interconnects Poliomyelitis eradication, Poliomyelitis, Smallpox vaccine and Intensive care medicine in the investigation of issues within Smallpox.
Frank Fenner focuses on Virology, Virus, Smallpox, Immunology and Myxomatosis. In his study, Orthopoxvirus is inextricably linked to Poxviridae, which falls within the broad field of Virology. His Virus study combines topics in areas such as Transmission, Rabbitpox and Infectious ectromelia.
His Smallpox research incorporates elements of Cowpox, Smallpox virus, Smallpox vaccine and Variola virus. Immunology and Disease are frequently intertwined in his study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Epidemiology, Virus diseases, Epizootic, Veterinary medicine and European rabbit.
Frank Fenner mainly focuses on Virology, Smallpox, Smallpox virus, Poxviridae and Virus. Frank Fenner studies Veterinary virology, a branch of Virology. The various areas that he examines in his Smallpox study include Nature versus nurture, Public health, Criminology and Variola virus.
Frank Fenner has included themes like Paralysis, Biological warfare and Smallpox vaccine in his Smallpox virus study. His Virus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ecology, Genome, Microecology and Arthropod. His work carried out in the field of Orthopoxvirus brings together such families of science as Inoculation and Cowpox.
Frank Fenner mainly investigates Smallpox, Virology, Orthopoxvirus, Poxviridae and Smallpox virus. His study looks at the relationship between Smallpox and fields such as Variola virus, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His research in Orthopoxvirus focuses on subjects like Cowpox, which are connected to Global health, Ancient history, Variolation and Colonization.
His Poxviridae research includes themes of Virus, Cidofovir, Ectromelia virus and Smallpox vaccine. His work on Viral disease as part of his general Virus study is frequently connected to Development economics, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His research in Smallpox virus intersects with topics in Environmental health, Convention, Armed conflict, Law and economics and Terrorism.
