SCIENCE IN THE BLOOD

As much as anybody can be, Duncan Macinnis was born a scientist.  With parents who both taught in the field, Duncan's childhood was spent among the exhibits of Sydney's Powerhouse and Australian Museums. Inspired by these experiences and encouraged by his family, Duncan continued his scientific education as far as a PhD in microbiology - studying yeasts under an industry linkage project with the beer maker Fosters.  Despite a clear love of science, the academic career path didn't call to Duncan. Instead, he spent his early career working sales roles for a number of biotechnology startups, attaining a level of business knowledge that would prove critical in his later career.  Now a director of the industry growth centre MTP Connect, Duncan Macinnis is charged with connecting researchers, businesses, investors and the government to help foster Australia's biotechnology ecosystem. And with a tenure that began alongside the onset of Covid-19, there could hardly be a more important time to be building a thriving biotechnology sector for Australia.
