- Colin Wesley Ward's professional life played out at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) laboratory on Royal Parade, Parkville, Victoria, where he was a scientist, leader, raconteur, colleague and friend to several generations of staff who worked there. Ward's scientific legacy encompasses large bodies of work on antigenic variation in influenza viruses, the taxonomy of plant viruses, veterinary vaccines and the structure and function of several growth factor receptors. On retirement from CSIRO he continued work on the insulin receptor with colleagues at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, conceived of and founded CSIRO pedia and compiled his family history. © 2018 Australian Academy of Science.
