What's going on?

The day after ASBMB2019, Professor Sir Tom Blundell of the Cambridge University Biochemistry Department gave us a great seminar "Reflections on a Life in Science: Research, Travel, Entrepreneuring, Politics and Music; Or on Being a Permanent Gap-Year Student” on Friday 4 October at UWA. The sundowner afterwards was fun and click here for some pics of the afternoon and evening. A great first PPG event.

Coming up

At some time in mid-2020 we will be having our first annual meeting. The venue and format are still being formulated, but we will be sure to keep you posted as plans are set, but at present the plan is to get out of Perth for a weekend..

Our mission is to enable interaction and collaboration between protein research groups in Perth, create awareness of research strengths and key research equipment within Perth, raise awareness and extend membership of the ASBMB, create a forum for students and ECRs to present their work in an informal atmosphere, help disseminate and technical and practical aspects of protein science, and bring scientists from interstate or overseas to present their findings.
