I speak to Prof Julie Bernhardt. Julie is a clinician researcher, NHMRC Established Fellow and Senior Principal Florey Research Fellow at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, Melbourne. Julie has been working with people with stroke for 30 years. She is Head of the Stroke Division at The Florey and leader of the AVERT Early Intervention Research Program.
On the podcast, she shares her challenges from her career spanning 30 years as she moves through the different levels of leadership. She challenges those around her to think big inspiring them to have a shared vision and purpose. Her advice to aspiring female leaders in science? Never take a no from someone who can’t give you a yes.
