Despite the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, SCMB students will have the opportunity to share their research at the symposium to be held on November 26th 2020, mainly as an online event.

This year’s Symposium will feature:

  • two plenary oral presentations (on Zoom), given by Dr Chris McMillan and Dr. Kylie Agnew-Francis, two young postdoctoral SCMB researchers who will share their projects and some thoughts about their career path;
  • oral presentations by students (on Zoom); and
  • student poster presentations, (face-to-face in the Hawken Engineering Building (Building 50).

Several prizes will be awarded on the day, with more that $1,000 in total to be won. View the judging sheets for oral presentations and poster presentations.

This event is a great opportunity for students to share their research and to network.  Organised by volunteer members of the SCMB Research Students' Advisory Group, the symposium is made possible by the generous support of our sponsors:

  • Silver sponsors: Genesearch and New England Biolabs
  • Bronze sponsors: LabGear, the Australasian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Australian Genome Research Facility and John Morris Group.
