Dane Lyddiard - Women in STEM: Anda Clayton and Her Four Passionate Decades in Pathology

Posted by on 14 June 2015

AndaI was recently fortunate enough to sit down and chat with two ASM members who were pivotal in developing my passion for microbiology: University of New England Associate Professor Lily Pereg (previous blog) and former Head of Microbiology at Southern IML Pathology, Ms. Anda Clayton. I was honoured to have worked under the guidance of Anda who always promoted my interest in learning and impressed me with her extensive knowledge. Now I have the opportunity to share some of her experiences in the field of clinical microbiology. I am sure Anda’s experiences will add to those of Lily, revealing just two of the many possible careers in Microbiology. It’s important to point out that both Anda and Lily work in regional areas, demonstrating that you don’t need to live in the big cities to build your career.

Dane Lyddiard - Women in STEM: Perspectives from Researcher & Academic A/Prof Lily Pereg

Posted by on 12 June 2015

LilyPeregI was recently fortunate enough to sit down and chat with two ASM members who were pivotal in developing my passion for microbiology: University of New England Associate Professor Lily Pereg and former Head of Microbiology at Southern IML Pathology, Ms. Anda Clayton. This first blog will focus on the career of A/Prof. Pereg who has established herself as a well-respected research scientist in the field of microbiology and lectures in both Biochemistry and Microbiology (and I must add, she has been one of my all-time favourite educators!). I’m sure her experiences along with those of Anda Clayton (in the next blog) will demonstrate the diversity of careers that exist in microbiology, encourage more people to join this exciting field, and overall, I hope they inspire you as much they have me!
