As a student-led initiative, the MLC PRISM Science Committee is hosting the inaugural Science Gala Dinner, an opportunity for MLC students, families and staff members to hear from two professional scientists during a two-course dinner.

Speaking at the event will be Professor Grant McArthur, the executive director of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre, and Dr Elizabeth Christie, an MLC Old Collegian and a post-doctoral researcher working on ovarian cancer genomics and tumour evolution.

Through networking with scientists well-established in their careers, attendees will have the wonderful opportunity of gleaning insight into what a successful career in science can be like, as well as broadening their horizons on future career pathways.

"The idea for the Science Gala Dinner came about when we were looking towards increasing opportunities for students at MLC to network with professional scientists outside of school," says Jessica Chung, Year 12.

"As students with a strong passion for science, yet uncertain as to how we may be able to carve our future pathways into a scientific career, we thought that hosting this Gala Dinner would provide not only an enjoyable meal for like-minded people, but also a way for students and their families to glean insight into what a successful career in science can be like."
