Our structural biology contingent headed down to Lorne for this year’s proteins meeting at the new Cumberland venue! Not only did the meeting have the stunning views and great talks that Lorne is known for, but Pathtech was giving out inflatable monkeys providing lab members with endless opportunities for mischief. Check out some pictures from […]
Taylor, Mehdi and Athina all picked up prizes for their poster presentations at the Lorne Protein Conference this week. Poster prize success rate was overall about the same as the current NHMRC grant success rate, so a champion effort from them! No doubt they’ll be buying the drinks for the rest of the lab…(and did […]
The Sydney Protein Group’s annual Thompson prize event was the other day, and Neil Robertson was one of the finalists. Despite giving a sterling talk, he didn’t walk away with the gong. He did however pick up the ATA Scientific Lorne travel award, while Gabrielle McClymont won the Greg Ralston Memorial Lorne travel award. Go […]
…Athina has been awarded the SPG’s Greg Ralston Prize, which will cover her costs for attending the Lorne Protein Conference in Feb 2016 – congratulations Athina!
Jason attended the Bosch Institute Annual Scientific and Young Investigator’s Meeting last week and walked away with the Genesearch Prize for an outstanding poster presentation. His poster title was ‘What’s in a NuRD? Strategies to elucidate the structure of multi-subunit complexes’. Well done that man! We’re thinking of putting the prize money towards a new […]
Neil nabbed one of the poster prizes at this year’s Lorne Protein Conference. Might have even been just about the only NSW poster prize from the 20 they announced! Well done Neil! Your shout, I reckon.
Jason gave a talk on his NuRD complex work at the recent “Proteomics and beyond” symposium hosted by APAF at Macquarie University and, in his first conference oral presentation, impressed the judges enough to be awarded the prize for best talk. Sterling effort Jason – and of course you know that all prize monies go […]
In the latest of a recent glut of international speaking invitations (Gordon Conference in the US and the Prague Spring Meeting being the most recent), Jacqui has been invited to speak at the GATA meeting, which will be held next year on the island of Kos in Greece. Nice for some!
At the recent East Coast Protein Meeting, Philippa won the ComBio award based on her talk and CV – entitling her to travel to ComBio in Perth this year to present her work to a wider audience. At the same time, Lorna picked up the postdoc poster prize for describing her recent work, so Jacqui’s […]
Herman won a poster prize at the recent Lorne Protein Conference for his dehalogenase work. He must be getting sick of winning them by now, surely.
