Madeleine Bessen is a first year PhD student within the Adelaide Spinal Research Group (ASRG) & Centre for Orthopaedics and Trauma Research (COTR). Madeleine has 3 years experience working in phase 1 clinical trials, but has recently returned to the University of Adelaide to pursue her passion for neurotrauma research.
