Location: TRI Auditorium or via Zoom (zoom link - Passcode: RTS2023)

In this seminar, we explore the various pathways to taking a clinical question and turning it into a research project with translational potential.

Prof Greg Monteith will share his experience at identifying new drug targets for breast cancer and working with UQ’s QEDDI to turn this into a drug with a commercialisation pathway. While Prof Jenny Couper will talk about her work on the ENDIA project, which is following babies from the pregnancy into early childhood to find out what causes type 1 diabetes.

Matthew Britland specialises in bringing science into clinical practice. He will share his insights into how scientists can effectively bridge their laboratory expertise into the clinic via industry and patient engagement. Lastly, we will hear from a technology transfer expert on how to understand if a solution to a clinical question actually has what is needed to be translatable: what do you need to consider if your work is to have any chance at being commercialised by industry.
