Episode 44 - Making a Real Impact 
(With Dr. Guy Cameron)
Episode notes:

Meet Dr. Guy Cameron, a proud Wailwan (Aboriginal) man living in Newcastle, NSW, Australia. Guy has recently received his PhD (Immunology & Microbiology) from the University of Newcastle, and he is now a postdoc fellow with the Aboriginal Ear Health Group. After he finished his PhD Guy decided to continue studying in the Joint Medical Program at the University of Newcastle which includes a Bachelor of Medical Science & Doctor of Medicine.

 

In this episode Guy talks about his journey that started with no intention to continue his education and ended up (so far) with a PhD. He explains what made his decide to pursue a Bachelor of Art, during which he discovered his passion to biology and the human body. That passion led him to pursue Bachelor of Biomedical Science, and following that began his PhD (Immunology & Microbiology) - all at the University of Newcastle. He also talks about his future plans to combine his research knowledge with the medical knowledge.

 

Guy talks about both his PhD research and his current postdoc research. He describes some of his challenges during his PhD, the importance of a good support system and the important value of academic twitter. Guy is a very strong advocator of mental health and during Covid-19 pandemic he spent his time dispelling misinformation and providing his community with reliable knowledge sources.

 

 

Because of the time differences, in this episode Danni drank her morning coffee, and Guy drank local dry Gin.
