The conference is a biennial meeting continuing the original series of Curtin Conferences organized by Peter Gage. It encompasses all aspect of the biology of striated muscle, including excitation-contraction coupling; ryanodine receptor physiology and biophysics; Ca2+ regulation; performance and fatigue; metabolism and aging; cardiac muscle growth and dysfunction; myopathies.
Registration and Abstract Submission open mid February.
Diversify Your Thinking presents a highly interactive program with a strong professional development focus for EMCRs. The event will bring together early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) and scientific leaders from academia, industry and government.
This National Physiology Quiz has been developed by some of our UNSW Medical Students following their experiences at the International Medical Schools Physiology Quiz in Kuala Lumpur earlier in the year. The Physiology Department at UNSW has been selecting our top Physiology students to compete in this event over the past 10 years and it is a fantastic way to engage our students to review and further their study of Physiology and to also meet up and form networks with undergrad Physiology students from around the world. This year about 100 University teams from around the world, and particularly from South-East Asia, participated in this 2-day event in KL. A number of countries have recently established National quizzes as a prelude to this International event, and our aim is to also establish an Australian/Australasian Quiz event. For further information and to register, students can email firstname.lastname@example.org or or check out the Facebook page. Staff are also welcome to attend (but can't compete :-) !)
Australian Functional Genomics initiative We are creating a network to connect researchers who can investigate functional genomics of newly discovered genes and variants. If you are a researcher who can investigate the mechanisms of gene variants using in vitro, in vivo or in silico methods, we want you to register your interest in Australian Functional Genomics!
Scientists in Schools Program: Scientists in Schools is a national program that seeks to bring volunteer
scientists, including applied scientists, engineers and mathematicians,together with teachers into an ongoing professional partnership, with the aim
of increasing awareness of contemporary scientific endeavour and knowledgewithin our school communities. You can find more information on the
program at www.scientistsinschools.edu.au
