My presentation as an Early Career Researcher at the Women In Medical Research Colloquium, University of Melbourne 2012


In 2012 I was nominated as an “Early Career Researcher” speaker at a colloquium to celebrate 150 years of women in medicine at the University of Melbourne.

While I was incredibly honoured to be nominated, I was somewhat in a panic when my nomination was accepted, because I was newly pregnant – and my presentation was scheduled for 4pm, which is the time of day I usually prefer to be horizontal, and preferably asleep – not presenting to a discerning audience of high-achieving female researchers and scientists!

I made it through the presentation though I was very nauseous, exhausted and generally feeling vile at 8 weeks pregnant. I come on at 9 minutes 13 seconds to talk about “building a bridge between Western and Eastern medicine”. Enjoy! :)
