A professor who influenced the world’s pandemic public health responses has been named on Time Magazine‘s ‘100 Most Influential People of 2021’. 

QUT’s Distinguished Professor Lidia Morawska’s appears alongside the world-renowned names of Prince Harry and Meghan, Britney Spears and Xi Jinping.

Professor Morawska is among those responsible for alerting the world to the significance of airborne particles in COVID-19 transmission.

She told Neil Breen while medical professionals understood the role of airborne particles, health authorities did not.

“Since the beginning of our quest of bringing this significance to the world, all my medical colleagues, all the medical community was behind this.

“We were the scientists, medical professionals trying to convince the public health authorities, including the WHO that they should look at things differently.”
