Our launch on Friday 26 July was attended by 55 protein scientists from UWA, Curtin, Murdoch, ECU and Notre Dame. All our news is on Twitter, but you can click to see the launch slide show, the 65 lightning slides (Note: 42 MB) or photos from the day.

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.
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..
At our recent launch we appointed people to several of vacant positions, but are still looking for someone to take charge of PPG events, e-mail email@example.com to express your interest.
