Research Saves Lives

Research Saves Lives

This sentiment was driven home on Tuesday the 12 of December when I was honoured to attend the first ever research masterclass presented at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) along with eight other prize-winners from South Australia.

Screen Shot 2018-01-22 at 10.18.45 am.pngThe complex, often lovingly referred to as the cheese grater, is every bit as architecturally stunning on the inside as from afar. SAHMRI is a private non-for profit institution dedicated to curing the current-world issues that plague the health of humanity.

During my visit, it was a pleasure to be granted access to the restricted/off-limits cancer and genetics laboratories at SAHMRI and to witness cutting edge Leukaemia research and experimentation occur before by eyes. We were shown samples containing the cells of patients from the Royal Adelaide Hospital and was delighted to hold and examine a $500 DNA sequencing slide. Above all, attending this class at SAHMRI enabled us to connect with industry professionals and opened pathways for future work experience and work placement at SAHMRI.

The sheer scale and enormity of the work that is being undertaken at SHMRI is truly mind-bending and I would encourage the future research project students to make use of this opportunity and enter their projects in the 2018 research project competition.
