Research Degrees the Focus of the Day
The School of Pharmacy hosted its annual Research Higher Degree (RHD) Day on February 17. Associate Professor Bruce Charles, the UQ School of Pharmacy Postgraduate Coordinator, chaired the proceedings.
This event provides the opportunity for the School of Pharmacy RHD candidates to network with their peers as well as academics and other researchers, allowing them valuable insight into how they can make the most of their research degree candidature.
Several excellent speakers from the UQ Graduate School presented talks on topics related to thesis examination and milestones.
Amongst these was UQ Deputy Dean, Professor Sarah Roberts-Thomson, who gave a presentation entitled “Including published work in your research higher degree thesis”.
Participants were also fortunate to hear from a special guest speaker, Dr Jagdev Sidhu, currently the Director of Early Clinical Development at CSL Ltd in Melbourne. Dr Sidhu’s presentation, “The PhD and Pharma industry”, provided our RHD students with a valuable insight into careers within the local and international pharmaceutical industry.
