It was fantastic to be sponsoring the inaugural CRISPR Down Under Symposium, held in person on Friday 27th October 2023 at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute in Melbourne.
Our Communications and Outreach Coordinator Dr Marina Trigueros attended this very popular event that linked CRISPR research leaders, postdocs and students across Australia, providing a multidisciplinary forum to discuss emerging CRISPR technology and its application to advancing medical research.
Alongside an all-star local speaker lineup, this symposium featured keynote talks from international speakers, as Dr Dana Foss from USA, and Dr Ben Haley from Canada as well ad and national speakers Dr Pilar Blancafort from WA, and Phenomics Australia Scientific Leader Professor Paul Thomas from SA.
This symposium attracted a broad audience from the Melbourne biomedical precinct, with registrants from the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI), Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, La Trobe University, and Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity, as well as the Children’s Cancer Institute in NSW.
Congratulations to the organizing committee, the amazing speakers and the winning posters and flash talks!
