John’s career in medical science began by completing a BSc degree from LaTrobe University in 2001 with double majors in Genetics and Neuroscience. John subsequently completed a post graduate diploma in Genetics in 2002 and a master degree in Clinical Embryology at Monash University in 2003. His interest in reproductive health led him into the field of sexual health at MSHC in 2005 to further his research interests in STIs and where he successfully completed his DPH in the School of Population Health, University of Melbourne in 2008
During his time at MSHC, John participated in a variety of research projects including general practitioner postal surveys and data entry of STI trends. John describes his experience at MSHC as one of excitement and exhilaration working in the many different areas of sexual health research. “Every project was different and diverse, and there was never a dull moment. All of my work colleagues/supervisors were more than happy to assist in any way possible and everyone here was always positive and helpful. Overall in my duration here as a student researcher, I have had an outstanding and memorable time.”
