We are fortunate to have two excellent speakers, Prof Susan Wray and A/Prof Andrew Moorhouse, to lead the ECR workshop, which focuses on two areas: the pros and cons of Open Access Publishing, and the importance of intellectual property.
Prof Susan Wray, is a cellular and molecular physiologist and Deputy Head of Department at the University of Liverpool, UK. Prof Wray is the current Editor-in-Chief of Physiological Reports, and a past Editor of the Journal of Physiology.
Associate Professor Andrew Moorhouse leads the Neurobiology Research lab at the University of NSW. A/Prof Moorhouse's research interests are in the molecular and cellular basis of neuron excitability and he currently holds a patent entitled Methods for inhibiting neuron apoptosis and necrosis.
A/Prof Moorhouse will lead the session on intellectual property discussing The ups and downs of IP and its interplay with publishing.
The student and ECR mixer on Monday evening is always a great event. This year's mixer will be held at The Captain Melville located at 34 Franklin Street, in the Melbourne CBD.
Please indicate your attendance at the event via the conference registration process. The cost is $15 (includes drinks and food).
