It is important to get results from experiment but the most important is the process in getting the results.

I was the Director of the Research Grants team at the National Health and Medical Council. I was responsible for managing and delivering several funding schemes including Project Grants, Development Grants, Targeted Calls for Research and International Collaborations with an annual budget of approximately $500 million. I am also responsible for the Women in Health Science Committee – established to identify barriers and enablers to the progression and retention of women in health and medical research. I have a PhD in neurophysiology from Monash University. After completing my PhD in 2003, I worked for five years in the Department of Neuropathology at Harvard Medical School focusing on the underlying neuropathology of perinatal brain injury with particular focus on cerebral palsy and stillbirth. Upon my return to Australia, I continued my research at Melbourne University before taking up a position at Medical Council.

I think so because if you've stopped feeling afraid then probably life doesn't hold much meaning anymore.

Having fears is a normal thing for humans. Without it, we won't know how much farther we can go in our journey spiritually and emotionally.

It's normal to be afraid. Kids and adults all have something they fear. They may not show it but they definitely feel it.

Yes, it is normal for everyone to be afraid. I think the reason behind for having fears is to test our mind and heart to overcome it. It will make us stronger and braver in the end.

We're all scared of something! No matter how brave you are, there will always be something to be scared of.

There is always an underlying reason for any fear that we have. I think as humans, we are full of fears since we don't have much understanding why we are here and how are we going to make the best out of life.

I have fears but I am dealing them by understanding the main cause. Yes, there's always a reason why we feel afraid. We just have to be courageous to overcome them.

Yes it is very normal. There's no human can say that he has no fear at all or never experienced to be afraid.

Some people feel fear because of a bad experience they had. There must be something that triggers that fear.

It's a normal human emotion. We all feel it at some point.
