"The Systems Biology Centre provided me with a multidisciplinary, collaborative research environment during my PhD. With a number of subject matter experts in various domains, you are quickly exposed to a large range of disciplines and approaches to solving scientific problems. These experiences left me well prepared to join the pharmaceutical industry, having experience with cross-domain collaborations and the challenges of organising multi-institutional research programs."
