About this Event

The theme of the 2019 Bio21 Methods Symposium is Emerging Technologies for New Challenges and will feature presentations by keynote speakers and postdoctoral fellows highlighting a range of interdisciplinary methods. The Bio21 Methods Symposium is open to all researchers including postdoctoral fellows, students and lab heads from universities and other research organisations.

Program:

The program features leading academic and platform technology speakers who will share their latest research and innovative approaches to fundamental biological problems.

A key focus of the Bio21 Methods Symposium is to promote the careers of early-career postdoctoral researchers. Postdoctoral scientists can submit an abstract for selection by the committee for either a 15-min oral presentation or 3-min flash talk with accompanying poster. All selected abstracts will be eligible for presentation prizes to be awarded during the closing networking event.

The symposium will conclude with the Platform Technologies Mixer where researchers can network with other scientists and obtain information on the capabilities of a variety of core facilities from across Melbourne. The following facilities will be in attendance to give advice as to how they may help with your research: Bio21 Advanced Microscopy Facility, Bio21 Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Facility, Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics (VCFG), APN Mouse Metabolism Phenotyping Facility, WEHI Antibody Facility, WEHI National Drug Discovery Centre, WEHI Single Cell Open Research Endeavour (SCORE), Metabolomics Australia (MA), University of Melbourne core facilities – Biological and Optical Microscopy Platform (BOMP), Materials Characterisation and Fabrication Platform, Melbourne TrACEES Platform, Biosciences Electron Microscopy Unit.
