Rethinking food and nutrition science

1 June 2017:

CNBP Research Fellow Dr Philipp Reineck has been selected as a delegate for the ‘Theo Murphy High Flyers Think Tank’, a national group established by The Australian Academy of Science.

The Think Tank will bring together early and mid-career researchers exploring nutrition science in an interdisciplinary fashion.

Findings will contribute to the development of a long term strategic planning process for nutrition research in Australia.

Further information on the Think Tank is available online.

 

New Diamond and Nano Carbons conference

1 June 2017:
