Jarra Grigg has always had a fascination for science and understanding what’s going on beneath the surface. Studying a Bachelor of Science allowed him to explore his interests, choosing to focus on Biomedical Science part way through his degree.
‘I received a research scholarship assisting a scientist which provided a good insight into what research is like on a daily basis.’
After finishing his undergraduate degree at USQ, Jarra has gone on to study medicine. He aims to make a difference to people lives whether that be through research or practicing as a doctor.
‘I want to contribute to the wellbeing of others as individuals and to the wealth of human knowledge overall. Through research I am eager to find something that has a global impact, whether that’s a new drug, a new vaccine or a new way of providing medical supplies to remote locations. My aim is to help humans suffer less.’
