Dr Jeanette Pritchard, Chief Executive Officer
Jeanette has over 23 years’ experience working on multidisciplinary and cross-sector initiatives, with a focus on healthcare-related technologies. Jeanette completed her doctorate in point-of-care diagnostics for the early detection of cardiac markers at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the UK and, after a short spell as a post-doctoral researcher, moved into the biotechnology industry as a product developer and project manager.
Since relocating to Melbourne in 2006, Jeanette has managed and led a number of complex medical technology programs, such as the development of targeted nanoreagents for highly sensitive in vivo imaging, brain-machine interfaces and point-of-care infectious disease diagnostics, in all cases working closely with internationally renowned clinical specialists, engineers and biomedical scientists.
Jeanette actively maintains her knowledge of the latest developments in human health-related technologies through regular engagement with academic and industry networks and her role as an expert peer reviewer for the NHMRC.
