Industry Projects in Biotechnology

Trajan is pleased to collaborate with the Faculty of Science at the University of Melbourne to support industry projects offered to final year students enrolled in the Master of Biotechnology.

Students have the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge in a professional environment, gaining insights into current industry issues and developing an appreciation of working in a biotechnology organization.

Student teams address a practical industry challenge over two semesters, with a Trajan mentor allocated to each team providing industry guidance.

In 2016 two teams are undertaking investigative projects in the fields of molecular pathology and skin cancer diagnostics.
