Description

Hi SoBRs Take a moment to watch Graham Mitchell's talk at the SoBR's 2013 networking dinner event themed "The changing landscape of Medical research". Graham talks about the key elements in government funding and explains the reasons the government and the society invest in science where the biggest investment lies in medical research. He continues on emphasizing the importance of communicating with the supports of science to be able to translate research and to link the bridge between science/business and science/society. Graham Mitchell is a veterinary graduate and University gold medallist of the University of Sydney. At The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI) he made discoveries in immunology and obtained a PhD in 1969. After post-doctoral experience in California (Stanford), England (National Institute for Medical Research, Mill Hill) and Switzerland (Basel Institute for Immunology) he returned to Australia in 1973 and established a new program on the immunology of parasitism at WEHI. Mitchell has been an advisor on innovation to the Victorian, Commonwealth, Tasmanian and Northern Territory Governments. He has been a Principal of Foursight, an advisory service in science, technology, innovation and commercialisation. Where else to find us!
