Q: What is your role in the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct Team?
A: I have just joined the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct (RHIP) as the Kinghorn Chair, Neurodegeneration at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) and have the privilege of co-chairing RHIP’s Translational Research Working Group with Professor Adam Jaffe.

Q: What attracted you to this type of work?
A: As a clinician scientist, I enjoy translating research outcomes into clinical care so we can improve the health outcomes of the patients we see both within and beyond the Precinct.
Being able to discover or adopt new technologies to improve patients’ lives is exciting, always challenging, and is a real honour - especially when you can see it making a tangible difference in the community.

Q: What excites you most about the Precinct?
A: I am returning to the Precinct where I first studied medicine and was inspired to become a neurologist and clinician researcher.
It is very exciting for me to come back to where I started, especially at a time when there is a clear vision and drive to innovate.
Having key stakeholders invest in the campus and transform the way in which we collaborate is wonderful to see and realise.
The opportunities to work collaboratively across the Precinct are extensive and we have fantastic resources to utilise, as we implement the latest research findings into healthcare.

Q: What do the next six months look like for you?
A: I am looking forward to establishing my new research laboratory and clinical service at NeuRA.
I will be focused on building up our clinical service with my clinical team and will also be busy establishing our Neuroscience Research Program with my laboratory team.
