Mark Lock
Dr Mark Lock is a descendent of the Ngiyampaa people, English and Scottish Convicts on the First Fleet (the Lucas Clan), Latvian immigrants, and Australian free colonists. His grandmother, Marjorie Woodrow (1926-2016), encouraged him to become educated and make changes for First Nations Australians. Mark combines cultural rigour and research rigour into everything he does, through a cultural safety lens, to ensure the First Nations Peoples cultural voices are heard in policy, research, and practice. Mark holds a BSc (hons) (1996) in biochemistry and microbiology, a Master of Public, and a PhD in Public Health (University of Melbourne).
