stories

  • "I've always wanted to pursue a career in medical research"
    Biomedical Science student, Callum Robinson
    Callum RobinsonBiomedical Science student

    I heard ECU's Biomedical Science course covered many different aspects of medical research, including genetics and human biology, so I saw this as a prime opportunity to further my education in this field.

    I've been able to gain practical experience in a laboratory outside of university and found this has increased the value of my CV immensely.

    My greatest achievement would have to be the International Science Project unit where we visited Tianjin Medical University in Tianjin, China. The trip and experiences have been invaluable!

    I've also received the Fertility North Prize in Reproductive Biology. This award has opened the door for possible postgraduate studies in an established laboratory.
