We are delighted to welcome Dr Tania Obranovich who is well known to the Australian biotech industry through, amongst other activities, her efforts on behalf of the sector in lobbying the Federal Government on issues relating to the patenting of genes in Australia.

Dr Obranovich has a distinguished career as a Registered Patent Attorney and acts for several significant Australian biotech companies. She is also heavily involved in education in the IP profession at the University of Melbourne, and is a member of the Professional Standards Board for Patent and Trade Marks Attorneys.

As you are no doubt aware, the number of girls participating in Science continues to fall. By working together, we can positively influence young women and create a culture of excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) studies.

It is for this reason that we implemented the annual Science Breakfast seven years ago where students are invited to join with women who represent many different branches of Science to discuss the impact, study pathways, and career opportunities that exist across the broader STEM arena.

Our aim is to provide an opportunity for women in Science to develop a network that will promote Science, not just in schools, but across the scientific community.
