Seminar: "Best and Brightest" MRI sector survey | Chris Walton
Date: Monday September 5
Time: 1pm – 2pm
Location: The Westmead Institute for Medical Research, 176 Hawkesbury Road (5 minute walk from Westmead station).

"Maintaining and improving the health and well-being of every Australian relies on attracting our best and brightest to become Medical Researchers. Even then, without adequate support and development opportunities, we risk losing this invaluable expertise to other, less vital industries.

Are we attracting this talent? And do these vital professionals have our support?

Professional Scientists Australia asked those uniquely placed to answer this question – the researchers themselves – to tell us about their career experiences, the barriers they saw to optimal research outcomes and the issues and problems they faced in their day-to-day activities. So what did they tell us?"
