Careers that started in science
Ann Damien, Bachelor of Biotechnology
“I first became interested in science when I attended the National Youth Science Forum while I was in high school. That was the first time I really saw people who were genuinely excited about science! I was hooked.
UQ’s international ranking and reputation for world-acclaimed researchers in life sciences along with excellent campus facilities placed UQ at the top of my preference list.
I now work as a New Technology Associate in the Asia-Pacific New Technologies Team (ANTT) at Cook Medical.
Biotech is an amazing field to be a part of, the opportunities for new technologies and development are almost unlimited.”
