The Power List 2018 – Masters of the Bench

Christopher J.H. Porter

Professor and Director, Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences

“I’m motivated by my next discovery; however big or small. I became an academic because of the excitement, wonder – and sometime panic! – that discovery can bring. I now have many different tasks to get through, but the best part of every day is still the anticipation of what the next graph might show. I realize that this is a utopian and perhaps unrealistic aim, but I’d like to see a greater emphasis on addressing unmet medical need in a manner that is not driven by market size. Philanthropy and public/private partnerships are increasingly trying to redress this balance, and have been successful in certain areas, but there is much more that can be done.”
