Annual ASCIA Basten Oration

Professor Antony Basten AOThe ASCIA Annual Basten Oration was initiated in 2006 by the ASCIA 2006 chair and ASCIA President (2005-2006) Dr Karl Baumgart, who also presented Professor Antony Basten AO with his portrait (painted by Dr Gillian Dunlop) at the ASCIA 2006 Conference.

The Basten Oration has been held at each ASCIA Annual Conference since then, in recognition of Professor Basten's pioneering work in immunology for more than 40 years, which continues today.

As well as Professor Basten's immense contribution to the discipline of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, he was also the founding President of ASCIA and Chairman of the highly successful XVII International Congress of Allergology and Clinical Immunology (now known as the World Allergy Congress) held in Sydney in the year 2000.
