Ysanne Long of Kallangur has secured a job at one of Queensland’s leading fertility and IVF organisations after completing her PhD at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
Ysanne, 32, who graduated from USC last month, is now working as a reproductive scientist at the Queensland Fertility Group in Brisbane.
She said the laboratory experience she gained during her PhD and Honours studies at USC had helped her to secure a dream role with the group.
“I am responsible for working with other scientists to develop best practice standards and apply the latest advances in treatment technology,” she said.
“The extensive biological sciences foundation I developed at USC ensured I was not only qualified but well prepared for working within the science and health sectors.”
Ysanne said she had enjoyed a range of benefits from studying at USC.
“The small class sizes at USC mean students can not only get to know each other, but learn from each other as they progress through their studies,” she said.
“I thoroughly enjoyed all my courses. Studying biological sciences also gave me the opportunity to learn new fields of science.”
