Today the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute’s (AMSI) put out a media release regarding our partnership with them through their APR.Intern program.
Enhancing APR.Intern’s focus on accelerating women into STEM, the collaboration will increase PhD industry engagement through placement of 24 of the Centre’s skilled PhDs in short-term research projects over four years.
AMSI Director Professor Geoff Prince said the partnership would open exciting opportunities to address gender equity while equipping a new generation of medical research leaders.
“These projects will have transformative impacts for health innovation, while training PhDs with essential skills to drive commercial medical research and development,” he said.
With over 500 Australian MedTech companies already in operation and skill demand growing, the ARC CPTT aims to foster supply of PhDs with both the research and industry skills to drive product research and development, and oversee regulatory affairs which are required for future growth of the sector.
ARC Centre for Personalised Therapeutics Technologies Director, Professor Alastair Stewart said facilitation of PhD industry engagement opportunities was central to meeting this challenge in Australia.
“A core mission for our Centre and APR.Intern, this partnership opens critical avenues to provide PhDs with essential experiential industry training helping to future proof the biomedical workforce,” says Professor Stewart.
