Chris Collet has nearly thirty years of research experience on projects related to the discovery and utilization of natural resource products in biotechnological application from insects, plants and animals. Since joining Queensland University of Technology in 1995, Collet has played a major role in innovative curriculum development, course design and implementation related to the bachelor of applied science course and the new bachelor of biotechnology innovation. The latter course is a unique and innovative approach to educating students in the business and science of biotechnology aimed at producing the next generation of biotechnology entrepreneurs who could make an impact on the industry as business-savvy scientists, agents of research commercialisation or founders of their own start-up companies. In recognition of the innovative nature, outcomes and impact of the QUT initiative, Collet recently received the prestigious award as Best Entrepreneurial Educator in Australia, 2005.
