Student stories

Aron Downie (PhD candidate)

“I have loved working with the team at IMH. Undertaking my PhD at IMH has given me amazing opportunities to work with world leading researchers to study the detection of pathology, and recovery, in patients with low back pain. Additionally, the mentorship and support offered at IMH has given me the confidence to communicate with a broader scientific audience and plot a path for the next stages of my research career.”

Angela Curto-Vratsistas
(PhD candidate)

“A few years ago I was given the opportunity to work as a project manager across a series of research projects in rehabilitation. The project was led by a team of well-respected researchers including Prof Cathie Sherrington. I have been fortunate enough to be mentored by her during the time I worked on this project and now whilst completing my PhD along with Dr Anne Tiedemann. Their incredible research knowledge as well as their approachable and supportive nature is also reflected across the Institute of Musculoskeletal Health. The IMH has also provided me with amazing opportunities to present my work both nationally and internationally. I would strongly encourage other researchers or students looking to join the IMH and have thoroughly enjoyed working with them.”

Mike Swain
(PhD Candidate)

“My PhD journey with IMH has been a positive life-changing experience. The PhD program has enriched my profession life as a healthcare clinician and opened new opportunities in the academic setting. Along the journey, I have presented at international symposia and collaborated with world leaders in the field of MSK disorders. My mentorship has been truly world class; I am incredibly grateful for the empowerment and support that my supervisors have provided.”
