Student ‘Meet and Greet’ with Invited Speakers

Student delegates are invited to attend the ‘Meet and Greet’ with Invited Speakers on Tuesday 9th February from 1:00 pm. This function provids an excellent opportunity for students to meet world leading international and local protein scientists. We understand that it can be very intimidating to ask questions of such eminent scientists or to divert them from in depth conversations, so as with the 2017 function, a number of early career researchers will be available to facilitate discussions, hopefully making this an enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone. Make sure you come along with some questions in mind for the speakers. Also, there is a short presentation from guest speakers. Please note this event is free but is often booked out, so make your selection in the addons section as soon as possible. If you don't receive a ticket but would like to attend please visit the registration desk in case of cancellations.
