An interview with Professor Eileen McLaughlin
Professor Eileen McLaughlin has just joined UOW as Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health. She recently spoke with Carly Evans and shares what attracted her to the role, her pathway into science and her latest research.
Analysing infectious diseases
Richard White is an infectious diseases statistician, working in the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. The UOW alumnus talks about his career path, and the choices that led him to put his skills and expertise to work on health statistics in the battleground against some of the world’s most frightening disease outbreaks.
Determination breeds innovation
When University of Wollongong alumna, Maryanne Harris was completing her exercise science degree, she could never have predicted where her career would take her. Stumbling into the wrong things, paired with her passion for helping people, became the driving force in her life.
UOW welcomes new leadership team
In a year that has brought widespread change to our global environment, 2020 also saw major leadership announcements for the University of Wollongong, including the appointment of a new Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor, to help drive the University into the future.
The changing face of medicine
We hear from four medical researchers on the way COVID-19 has affected public health and the future of medicine.
From Arnhem Land to Antarctica
Dr Rhys Harding relishes a challenge. The UOW alumnus has spent the past eight years carving out a career as a doctor in some of the most remote locations in the world. That has meant different things at different points in his life. As a medical student, he spent a year in Broken Hill, becoming exposed to the daily rhythm of practising medicine in the outback New South Wales rural community.
