Scholarships Support Emerging Talent

We have been fortunate to receive funding for two new scholarships that will support our research efforts, as well as our efforts to develop emerging talent in our research field.

It’s important to us that we play a role in developing the next generation of research scientists and Dr Clint Gray, our Chief Scientist, has been instrumental in attracting the funding to support and attract PhD students to our laboratory.
