Profile stories

"PhD students are the future leaders in our field and it is a privilege to work with students over a three year period on a dedicated project."

"I feel I can make a difference in people’s lives while doing what I enjoy the most: playing with some of the latest technology and gadgets."

"There are plenty of ways that communication can be harnessed and lifted to make tangible improvements in health outcomes. Everyone is geared for it, just not geared up to do it well – it’s a human condition that we can all work together on."

"I truly believe that our work can improve people’s health and benefit the whole population."

"We urgently need to move away from archaic models of care and work out what an optimal, 21st century healthcare system looks like."

"India possesses the ideal combination of the right skill sets and testing environments to generate innovative and disruptive models of healthcare delivery, and evaluate their scalability and affordability in real life situations."

"I feel lucky to have joined The George Institute. I love to compare it to a high-speed train that is carrying health and scientific research over a long distance to tackle the health problems affecting the whole population."

"The BMJ is keen to see a world in which every person and country has access to information about health, health care and social determinants of health that they need to protect their own health and the health of the people for whom they take responsibility."

"As a clinician, I observed that a lot of people in poor areas suffer from heart diseases and diabetes. Both my parents who come from a humble background are also diabetic and have heart disease. I was under the impression that these are rich people’s diseases."

"I have always enjoyed working with older people. While I was studying occupational therapy at university, I worked at a large retirement village. Being 18 years of age, it was like having 92 grandparents!"
