During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen first-hand how critical is the pathway from discovery to development. Turning research breakthroughs into life-saving treatments is difficult, and now there’s a need for a new kind of entrepreneur who understands both the science and business worlds, to translate and commercialise research and change health outcomes worldwide.

Combine your scientific background with an entrepreneurial mindset with the Graduate Certificate of Biomedical Science and Commercialisation. In this course, you’ll extend your understanding of stem cells and regenerative medicine, and learn cutting-edge techniques in molecular biology. You’ll have opportunities to hone your business skills and explore the research and development process and pathway to commercialisation..

A Graduate Certificate of Biomedical Science and Commercialisation could also lead you towards further study, with the opportunity to progress into a Master of Biomedical and Health Science or Master of Biotechnology.

Be part of the next generation of innovative thinkers, moving research forward, faster.
