Our “Getting to Know You” segment ensures PREDICT members are aware of new members, their interests and areas of expertise and where they are located. This month we introduce Marietta John from Monash Emergency Research Group.
“My name is Marietta John-White and I have recently started as a Research Coordinator with the Monash Emergency Research Group. Prior to this I have studied and worked for the last 12 years in the fields of Microbiology and Biochemistry, and also completed my PhD in these research areas at CSIRO and Monash University.
However, I have always longed to work in an area where I could contribute in any way to research that would have a direct and positive impact on improving human health. Therefore during my PhD, I worked part-time for a year in research at the Institute of Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research, which was affiliated with WorkSafe, Victoria and Traffic Accident Commission (TAC).
I am very excited about starting this role as a Research Coordinator at the Paediatric Emergency Department where I will be assisting with organisation, planning and implementation of projects undertaken by members of the group which would include the amazing MRFF Million Minds Projects.”
