Past Participants' Experience
From UNSW ALUMNI
“This has been a very insightful and helpful program. I came in to this with very limited knowledge of how to translate my work in to real world impact.
I have come away with a better understanding now, and am feeling more confident about potentially working with industry partners as a pathway to creating real impact.”
"Excellent program! It was wonderfully structured, full of insights and great advice during the coaching call!
I feel I have gained clarity around the expectations of translation research and that will help immensely in my final stages of the PhD. Thanks so much!"
