Dr Celia Laur

Postdoctoral Researcher, Women's College Hospital


Keep trying and follow your interests.

What do you do?

I figure out how to put research evidence into practice in healthcare.

Why did you choose this field?

I read about so many interesting projects and opportunities in healthcare but realized so many of them stopped after a short time. I wanted to figure out how to help keep these projects going so more people could benefit from them.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

I never imagined that I would do a PhD. I swore I would never do one - until the day I submitted my application.

Why do you love working in STEM?

The ideas! I get to work with so many interesting people that see the world in different ways and there is so much I can learn from each of them.

Best advice for next generation?

Keep trying and follow your interests.
