Zoe Marcourt: Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Honours) Graduate

"The desire to learn more about my brother’s rare condition inspired me to study biomedical science. I wanted to find out everything I could about the physiology and genetics of muscular dystrophy. At school, I found my biology and chemistry classes really interesting and I did an assignment on my brother’s condition in Year 11. That year, my mother and I went to a muscular dystrophy conference and it was there that I really thought about combining these significant interests of mine. My honours year was an unbelievable experience. I was in awe of the technology and resources available at UQ. Being immersed and working with lecturers, tutors and lab staff who were so passionate about their work was wonderful."
