Michelle Rourke's PhD on accessing and sharing virus genetic resources.
Fran’s expertise is primarily in the area of biological resource law, having spent over a decade developing fisheries, aquaculture and biosecurity law in the Queensland government, followed by several years of legal research in genetic resources and intellectual property as part of her PhD and postdoctoral research. She has also worked as a mediator and a lecturer in law.
Fran is now a Research Fellow with the Law Futures Centre coordinating a project on the future of ecological governance and regulation in Northern Australia. The project relates to Commonwealth, Northern Territory, Western Australian and Queensland laws affecting the north's ecologically sustainable development. She is also conducting further research on governance and regulation of aquatic genetic resources for use in Australian aquaculture and other sectors.
