Innovation takes an ecosystem and Stephen Rodda has worked harder than most to ensure South Australia is a fertile place for technologies to grow.
Born and raised in Adelaide, Stephen completed a PhD in stem cell biology before moving to Cambridge Massachusetts for a prestigious post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard University.
Since returning to Australia in 2007, Stephen has worked to foster a vibrant biotechnology ecosystem for South Australia at institutions including Bioinnovation SA, The University of South Australia, The Hospital Research Foundations, and as a director, CEO and chairman of several early-stage biotechnology companies.
Stephen is now the Executive Director of Innovation and Commercial Partners at the University of Adelaide, where he helps to ensure the university’s fundamental discoveries find a path to market
