Dr Lucy Shewell's Experience
"I have been working as a post-doctoral research scientist at the Institute for Glycomics since November 2009. I was awarded my PhD from Griffith University in the field of Molecular Microbiology in July 2011. I also studied my Bachelor of Biomedical Science with Honours at Griffith University. I knew that the Institute for Glycomics was a leading research institute in the field of glycobiology and was attracting high calibre scientists. I have witnessed the Institute grow so much over the last 10 years and this positive growth and the expanding facilities has encouraged me to stay."
