A CNBP ‘Spark of Life’ workshop saw an excellent turnout and much research discussion at the University of Melbourne today.
Led by CNBP Chief Investigator Prof. Jeremy Thompson (pictured right) and hosted by CNBP Associate Investigator Prof. David Gardner (University of Melbourne), the workshop sought to detail ongoing research within the CNBP and Prof Gardner’s team.
Discussed was progress on existing collaborations, thoughts on potential new collaborative opportunities, as well as an exploration of future grant and publication strategies, particularly relating to clinical assisted reproduction application of CNBP technologies.
A highly successful and engaging day, feedback from all attendees was positive with significant potential opportunities captured.
Next steps will see these potential opportunities investigated and prioritized for action.

It was a full house at CNBP’s Materials and Bioconjugation Workshop, June 9th 2015.
Hosted at Macquarie University, the full day workshop featured CNBP researchers talking briefly about their project work, followed by five minute Q&As.
Intended as educational overviews, the talks successfully enhanced understanding across the disparate areas of the trans-disciplinary Centre with positive feedback from participants.
A highlight of the day was a 60 minute talk from invited speaker Tiffany Walsh – Professor of BioNanotechnology at the Institute for Frontier Materials, Deakin University who spoke about her work on molecular simulation and modelling.
The event concluded with further networking and drinks.
