I am a General Practitioner working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. Even as a medical student at the University of Queensland it seemed to me that Aboriginal health was an area where there was an opportunity to make a difference. I always wanted to understand why things were so and how things could be improved.

My reason to get into clinical trials is because medicine, the human body and the disease processes are so complex that we cannot possibly understand them. Clinical trials are the conduit to understand things more and therefore improve patient care.
