I Choose SA for Health | Industry Insight
The multidisciplinary Adelaide BioMed City Precinct combines collaborative medical, education and research infrastructure that is establishing South Australia as a centre of excellence for healthcare research, services and products internationally.

Join us over a gourmet South Australian luncheon at the impressive new Mile End Clinpath Pathology laboratory. Guests will hear from the Chief Scientist for South Australia, Professor Caroline McMillen, on her insights into the medical technology and health research advancements in our state.

Professor Caroline McMillen, Chief Scientist for South Australia

Professor McMillen assumed the role of Chief Scientist for South Australia in October 2018. She holds a BA (honours) and Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Oxford, and completed her medical training, graduating with an MB, BChir from the University of Cambridge.

Professor McMillen’s research focusses on the role of the environment in early development in determining the metabolic and cardiovascular health of offspring later in life. Her research group has worked with many demographics including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, focusing on maternal, fetal, and post-natal health.

Throughout her career, she has been committed to building collaborations to deliver a positive impact on the economic, social and cultural health of Australia. At the end of her term as Vice-Chancellor, Professor McMillen was presented with the Key to the City of Newcastle by the Lord Mayor of Newcastle.
