About the program
This program brings together research leaders and research managers across the disciplines of bio-science, genomics and bio-engineering and focuses on sharing and discovering best practice in strategy, leadership and innovation relevant to the scientific enquiry encompassed in these disciplines. All participants will attend a six day program spaced over three months.
The program will be divided into 3, two day forums. The first session will be held in Singapore, the second in Perth and the third in Brisbane. Eighteen research leaders from Australia and Singapore, anticipated to take a greater leadership role, will discuss the strategic and leadership issues that drive innovation and growth and those that stifle and inhibit potential. With eminent bio-science leaders, the participants will discuss global strategic trends in the bio-sciences currently being identified by governments, corporations and universities. Our eminent leaders will reflect on their strategic decisions and make observations about the next ten years through their lens of experience. Participants will be challenged to learn from the mistakes of the past.
Who should participate?
Participants will be senior research leaders and senior research managers from the disciplines of bio-science, genomics and bio-engineering. The pgram will be limited to 18 participants only. All participants will have responsibility for developing and managing relationships beyond their laboratory. Meet with some of the most respected research leaders in the bio-sciences as guest presenters Participants meet with six eminent research leaders in the field of bio-science (see list below). In a relaxed, informal environment, these leaders discuss the issues that shaped them as leaders, their personal insights, their institutional observations and their global strategic perspectives regarding bio-science research.
Case studies from participants
Each participant presents their research concentration as a ‘case study’. Issues of strategy, people management, strategic alliances and more, are analysed and explored. The case study presenters ask questions of the group and are challenged to see what is familiar to them from a different perspective.
Work preference analysis
All participants gain an insight into their own leadership style through an internationally respected work preference and leadership analysis tool, the Team Management Profile.
Research leadership essentials
Participants come prepared to engage with their colleagues in a rich conversation that focuses on new leadership perspectives and issues within bio-science research and its clinical and commercial translation.

Mark has worked in senior management roles within consulting organisations, within government and university research environments.
The purpose of the Bio-Science Forum is to build leadership and strategic awareness relevant to driving success across and between the three disciplines of bio-science, genomics and bio-engineering. Participants will grow their appreciation of strategy across the international research landscape as they see the ‘bigger picture’. The program will discuss the strategic implications of recent international initiatives and require the participants to deliberate upon the strategic and organisational issues affecting:
• International research collaboration;
• The translation of research;
• Successful and ethical relationships with industry;
• Access to research and infrastructure funding
