Farewell Prof. Townsend


Recently, Professor Grant Townsend has announced his official retirement from the School of Dentistry. Professor Townsend graduated from BDS in 1972, and went onto further complete his BScDent (Hons), PhD and DDSc in the following 2 decades.

From his immeasurable contributions to dental research to his unfaltering devotion to education, it is no question that there is none more passionate nor selfless than Professor Townsend. 

In celebration of his achievements and tenure as a professor of the school, the AUDSS is calling on all past colleagues, students and friends of Professor Townsend to write a message, be it long or short, to be anthologised and professionally bound in a book in commemoration of his illustrious career. Anyone who wishes to send a message*, we ask for upwards of a gold coin donation  to assist with the production of the book and to purchase a gift as a token of our appreciation and thank Professor Townsend for over 50 years of association with the School.

Additionally, if there are any photos that you have, that you would like us to add to the book, please feel free to upload them!

* Messages are available to be posted once you press on "Donate"
