However, the feeling of seeing something or finding something that no one else in the world has ever found before is really, one of a kind. The discoveries you make in the future, as scientists and science students will power the researchers after you, like the shoulders Isaac Newton stood on to reach new heights of exploration.
I am moving down to Melbourne to work for one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world: GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). I'll be working with the medical affairs department, which specifically acts to bring new oncology drugs to cancer patients. Cancer has affected the people I love in many ways and I am so lucky to be able to work in a role that directly strives to improve patient outcomes.
Throughout my journey, I have been supported by amazing network of family and friends as well as incredible mentors and female role models. I cannot wait to see ambitious, bright young women such as yourselves bring forth a new dawn of scientific advancement, that we can all look forward to in the future.
Best wishes, Dr Hung.
