HRI is pleased to welcome Dr Xuyu (John) Liu as Unit Leader. Originally from New Zealand, Dr Liu joins HRI through a Sydney Cardiovascular Research Fellowship. Dr Liu has a strong research record in both peptide and small-molecule drug discovery fields.
Born and raised in Nevada, USA, Dr Melissa Farnham originally had no interest in research. Now Unit Leader of the High Blood Pressure Group at HRI, and balancing the challenges of family and work, she couldn’t imagine any other career path.
As a Senior Postdoctoral Scientist at HRI, Dr Siân Cartland is not only breaking stereotypes but also pushing boundaries in the scientific world.
“A career in research really gives you a sense of purpose and drive. While it can be a long and difficult path, every day you can feel satisfied that the work you do is for the greater good. And that in itself is one of the most rewarding experiences,” says Richard Tan, PhD candidate with the Applied Materials Group at HRI.
