The scientist behind the research

11 August 2014, Technology

Kylie Price has dedicated her career to harnessing technology to improve medical research. Kylie says growing up in rural New Zealand meant she saw the hardships of disease on animals, “These experiences created a passion for understanding what creates wellness. I wanted to find a career where I could improve the health of people and believed that science was the tool I could use to achieve this goal.”

“As my career developed, I realised that we could accelerate medical research through faster analysis of results. This got me thinking, 'how much faster could I push medical research using my skills?' Ultimately, this question led to my role as Hugh Green Flow Cytometry Fellow.”

The investment of the Hugh Green Foundation has been essential in growing Kylie’s expertise in Flow Cytometry, enabling Kylie to connect with and learn from the world’s experts in this exciting field of science.

 “Part of the reason for our recent increase in clinical trials for new treatments is due to our growing expertise in Flow Cytometry. I am immensely grateful for the unbelievable support of the Hugh Green Foundation. Their support of my development means that we’re able to do big science with a big aim – developing better treatments for our loved ones.”
