Kristin: Welcome to Lisa Bailey who has commenced this week as the Industry Analyst at Bridge 8. Lisa obtained her Bachelor of Biotechnology at Flinders University and is currently completing her PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Adelaide. She is passionate about science education, not just to produce new scientists but to produce citizens who can make their own informed choices about the science and technology that inevitably affects all our lives. Lisa is on the South Australian committee of the Australian Society for Medical Research (ASMR), where she has been involved in coordinating educational outreach programs and public science engagement events such as “Science in the Cinema”. Lisa will be providing scientific content and analytical support for marketing, education and industry projects. She will also be a regular contributor to this blog. I am excited about the experience and knowledge Lisa brings to the role and look forward to her contribution.
