Brisbane Life Sciences ECR Symposium

24 November 2017, Brisbane

Have you ever wondered what your peers do in their lab? What field they study?  What fancy technique they are an expert of? Then found yourself bored out of your mind during a general conference because the talks are too specific and you still don’t get what the research is about? 

We want to give you a sense of BLiSS

Imagine a one-day symposium made for ECRs, by ECRs. This event will provide a unique opportunity for Life Science ECRs from all the major Universities and research institutes in and around Brisbane to:

  • meet their peers,
  • share their research in an interesting and engaging format
    • Digital interactive posters
    • Short, punchy talks focusing on research impact and significance
    • Showcasing cutting-edge techniques
  • grow as a researcher
    • Build meaningful connections
    • Jump-start collaborations.

Other program highlights include a stellar plenary talk from NHMRC CEO Anne Kelso, panel discussions on “Engagement and Communication” and “Careers Beyond Academia”  and a fun-filled social mixer.
