Mohammad Rabiei, mentee in the 2018 MedTech-Pharma program in SA (The University of Adelaide)

I first obtained an associate degree in Veterinary Medicine and then a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Veterinary Medical Laboratory Sciences. In 2005 I began work in the laboratory complex of the Islamic Azad University, Shahrekord Branch, Iran. In 2013 I obtained a Master of Sciences degree in Medical Microbiology.

More than 12 years working in laboratories has enabled me to develop and hone an excellent range of technical skills. I have successfully led and performed several research projects, during which I learned how to interact with a wide variety of research and diagnostic team members in a constructive, creative and professional manner, and we reliably achieved our research goals.

I currently am funded by an Adelaide International Scholarship to obtain a Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Adelaide, with additional grant funds obtained from the Australian Centre of International Agriculture Research (ACIAR).  My PhD project involves molecular pathology of newly emerged strains of Newcastle disease virus in Indonesia, which are a potential disease threat of great concern to Australia’s poultry industry.
