AAIMS is very relieved and happy to hear about the release of our member, Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert, after 804 days of imprisonment in Iran. We can only try and imagine the impact of such imprisonment had on Kylie and her family. It would be fair to say that all academics in Australia were hurting for Kylie and many of us did what we could to support efforts to secure her release. Today is a day of relief and happiness for many of us.

It will a journey of recovery and healing for Kylie here on, we wish her all the best in that process. No doubt, the love and support that awaits her in Australia will be a great source of strength for her.
