“I come from a background of science, completing my Bachelor of Science at Griffith uni before going on to work in a lab for five years. The lab that I first joined was working on developing a blood clot test, similar in concept to a pregnancy test but for those at risk of blood clots. I was involved in the development of the test from the research and development stage all the way through to bringing it to the market place over a 12 to 18 month period. Upon completion of the product I was offered a role in a similar project but I decided it was time for something different, I wanted to explore my options outside of science. I started studying law part-time, focusing in intellectual property which led me to a position in a technology transfer office at the University of Queensland. A technology transfer office looks at the technologies being utilised by the university, assesses them and then decides whether to raise money to fund them further or whether to licence them out to an appropriate partner.”Read More
