My name is Jason Palazzolo. I was born, raised and currently live in Melbourne, Victoria. I have graduated with a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Biomedical Science, both from the University of Melbourne. Following my university studies, I have since pursued a career in the pharmaceutical industry, where I have held several different positions, such as a vaccine manufacturer and clinical trial project co-ordinator. Most recently, I worked as a research and development scientist at Seqirus (a CSL company).
In regards to my personal life, I am currently planning my wedding with my wife-to-be, which is scheduled for early 2019. Also, I’m a passionate follower of the Australian Football League of which I am a long-term member and supporter of the North Melbourne Kangaroos Football Club. By undertaking this PhD, I hope to improve the health and wellbeing of patients diagnosed with thrombosis, across Australia and worldwide. I am grateful to be awarded my PhD scholarship from Australian Rotary Health and Rotary District 9830 and I look forward to working closely with both groups going forward.
