The two-week course is modelled on the pre-doc training program at the prestigious European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), and it covers the latest ideas and advances in molecular biology and life sciences.
There will be multiple keynote speakers throughout the course, commencing on the first day with Prof. Jenny Graves (La Trobe University, winner of the PM’s Prize
for Science in 2017), Prof. Peter Gunning (Head of School of Medical Sciences, UNSW) and a special welcome from Prof. James Whisstock (Scientific Head of EMBL Australia). Daily sessions comprise both lectures and practical workshops and are hosted by leading Australian and international scientists. Specific topics within epigenetics, cancer genomics, systems biology and bioinformatics, advances in cell and developmental biology, genomic epidemiology, research ethics, law, integrity and equity and biotechnology will be covered.
The course also includes site visits to the Australian Antarctic Division and to the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Program.
First and second year PhD students from around Australia are invited to apply. The course will take place from 24 June to 5 July 2019 at the University of Tasmania. There is
no fee to attend.
