The Apprentice programs are small, hands-on workshops in which scientists, technologists and innovators educate curious minds on the workings and wonders of their chosen fields.
Combining biology, chemistry and physics, biomedical science examines the genetic and environmental causes of disease, and explores prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Today, translational research enables scientists to take discoveries from the laboratory bench to the hospital bed.
Apprentices will have a chance to experiment at QIMR Berghofer, a world-leading medical research institute to learn the techniques used to study the body’s immune responses to invaders like Ross River virus.
