Talina Bayeleva

Bachelor of Biomedical Science

Talina started her journey at Griffith studying a Diploma of Biosciences at Griffith College. After two semesters she graduated with a GPA of 7 gaining her entry into the Bachelor of Biomedical Science. Talina was in her first year when she heard about the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery Summer Research Scholarship. Immediately she had her sights set on it and describes it as her best student experience so far. ‘For six weeks I’ve been doing real-life experiments, using the techniques which I would not be able to perform during my Bachelor degree. That made me feel more comfortable in a lab and helped me figure out what I want to do in my future.’
