It’s important for researchers to communicate their work clearly

BioMedVic supports the career advancement of up-and-coming health and biomedical researchers and was proud to provide fully-supported scholarships for six early career researchers from BioMedVic Member organisations to attend a media training for scientists workshop on 21 Oct.

Hamish Innes-Brown said “The format of having the media people come and do practice interviews really put us all on the spot and made us think. Much more involving than a lecture…Thanks again for the support to attend, it’s a fantastic initiative!”.

BioMedVic looks forward to offering this opportunity again in early 2015.

Recipients of the BioMedVic scholarship (L-R:) TinaMarie Lieu, MIPS; Sophie Broughton, St Vincent's Institute; Husna Begum, Baker IDI; Kathryn Backholer, Baker IDI; Hamish Innes-Brown, Bionics Institute; Lesley Cheng, The University of Melbourne.
