The Centre for Transformative Innovation invites you to an in-person public seminar presented by Dr Alison Todd Co-Founder & Chief Scientific Officer, SpeeDx Pty Ltd .
Dr Todd’s research has produced diagnostic tests for infectious diseases which can help detect antibiotic susceptibility. This allows clinicians to treat patients with appropriate antibiotics and reduce the transmission of antibiotic-resistant infections.
To commercialise her discoveries, she founded SpeeDx Pty Ltd in 2009. Since then it has become a rapidly expanding, manufacturing company with export sales and a strong pipeline of new products
Dr Todd will discuss the entrepreneurial side of her research, exploring her initial steps to implement a business.
Dr Todd’s passion for inventing faster, simpler, more cost-effective technology for molecular analysis has opened the door for personalising therapy.
