Even Scientists Get Imposter Syndrome: Professor Laura Mackay on Breakfasters

Einstein A Go-Go’s Professor Laura Mackay recently nabbed the Prime Minister’s Frank Fenner Prize for Life Scientist of the Year and, just a few months ago, the Eureka Prize for Outstanding Early Career Researcher.

Laura chats to Breakfasters about how she first became captivated by immunology, why most scientists think they’re stupid (because they realise how much they don’t know), and her love for being a part of the Einstein crew, providing a platform for young Melbourne scientists.
