Curtin Health Innovation Research Institute (CHIRI) Research Fellow Dr Virginie Lam recently put up her hand to promote Curtin University’s biotechnology capabilities at the AusBiotech conference in Brisbane.

Virginie, who is from the School of Public Health, represented Curtin as part of Team Perth. Her role, along with fellow Curtin representative Deputy Director IP Commercialisation, Russell Nicholls, was to engage delegates and bring awareness to all things biotech, including the university’s broad-ranging capabilities, innovation hubs, institutes (including CHIRI) and graduate research school.

The conference was also an opportunity to fly the Curtin flag amongst the wider life sciences community, including attending biotech and pharmaceutical companies, investors, service providers and researchers, and to identify opportunities for industry collaborations.

Curtin’s representation at the conference was organised by the Research Office at Curtin.

Team Perth was comprised of the following WA institutes:

  • Curtin University, School of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences
  • Epichem Pty Ltd
  • Linear Clinical Research Ltd
  • Murdoch University, Research & Innovation
  • Proteomics International Laboratories Ltd
  • Telethon Kids Institute
  • University of Western Australia, Office of Research Enterprise
