Bianca Le, mentee in the 2018 MedTech-Pharma program in VIC (Monash University)

Bianca Le received a Bachelor of Science and Diploma of Italian at the University of Melbourne, where she discovered her passion for anatomy and physiology research. After moving to Monash University to complete an Honours degree in Renal Physiology, Bianca began a PhD investigating the effects of premature birth on heart development. Her research involves collaborating with scientists around the world to understand how being born early can have long-term impacts on cardiovascular health and quality of life.

Bianca’s interests in public policy and science communication led her to complete a 5 month internship at the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering, where she contributed to many national and international projects such as the Women in STEM Decadal Plan, the Innovation Metrics Review, submissions to the DFAT Soft Power Review and National Waste Strategy, and a publication in Focus Magazine. When she’s not in the lab or focusing on her research, Bianca enjoys writing articles on science, public policy and Effective Altruism.
