Dr Loz is the much loved educator behind SciencePlay Kids, a program focussed on making science accessible to all by hosting Educator PD, STEAM consulting programs and workshops across Melbourne.
For 12 years (before the inception of SciencePlay Kids) Dr. Loz was a medical researcher investigating the factors that were thought to contribute to cancer chemotherapy resistance. Since moving on from research and focussing on communicating science to kids, Dr. Loz has missed the lab. She wanted to find a way to still contribute and to improve the understanding on factors that contribute to the development of cancer and how to treat it.
By designing, creating and selling a range of jewellery showcasing the parts of the female body prone to cancer, and giving a portion of the profit back to medical research. Dr. Loz has been able to keep following her passion to improve the quality of life of people touched by the illness.
