A lot of travel and conference presentations for our team coming up so a short update. Jen, Adam and Stephen were honoured to be a finalist in the Eureka prize for infectious diseases recently – see video clip here of our pitch and red-carpet photos below! We applied together with Miles Davenport, Deborah Cromer and David Khoury at the Kirby Institute – we’ve been so grateful for their insights into our studies and our collaborative work – we have some 20 publications with their group in recent years – including a nice recent one from Wen Shi in Science Advances – see our publication page here for updates. Our other close collaborators, Katherine Kedzierska, Oanh Nyugen and Louise Rowntree won the award which was great to see.
We had a wonderful lab retreat at Marysville recently with Amy Chung’s group also – great to hear presentations from everyone, (students, RA’s, project managers, postdocs, lab heads!) and enjoy a bracing walk to the falls. We had A/Prof Steve Rockman from CSL/Seqirus as a guest who had plenty of insightful comments and advice. The annual tip packing competition was hotly contested. Some photos below.
Lara and Thu gave great talks recently at the ESWI Influenza conference in Spain and Adam gave a seminar at ANU recently - photos below.
Exciting news on grants and other awards under embargo – stay tuned for the next edition.
