His research, focused on neonatal chronic lung disease, has been supported by US National Institutes of Health grants for 30 years.

He has served as reviewer, member of the editorial board and editor of over 30 journals and is currently Editor-in-Chief of The Anatomical Record. He has led more than 20 courses on scientific writing, has participated in more than 20 publishing, grant writing, and mentoring workshops, and regularly speaks on career development issues at national and international venues.

Professor Albertine will be presenting two workshops targeted at developing academic writing skills for emerging researchers. Interested researchers are invited to participate in one or both workshops.

Workshop 1: Manuscript & General Writing Workshop (McCusker Auditorium, Perkins Institute)

Day 1: Tuesday 7 June from 8.15 am to 4.30 pm

During this workshop, you will gain invaluable knowledge on clear academic writing and writing scientific manuscripts. The morning session will provide approaches to enable you to write clearly and highlight the importance of ethics in science through audience discussion of case studies. The afternoon session will focus more on approaches to writing different manuscript sections with interactive constructive critique of participant writing examples of Methods and Results sections.

Day 2: Wednesday 8 June from 9.00 am - 12.30 pm

Day 2 of the Manuscript and General Writing workshop will continue with interactive critique of participant writing samples of Discussion and Introduction sections, and provide tips on making figures and graphs for publication. Prior to the workshop, participants will provide electronic files of one section of their manuscript, chosen from either the introduction, methods, results or discussion, as well as figures and graphs. The files will be projected during the workshop for audience viewing and discussion by Professor Albertine and the other participants.

Workshop 2: NIH Grant Writing Workshop (Room G24, Perkins Institute)

Thursday 9 June from 8.00 am - 5.00 pm

The goal of this one-day practical workshop is to cover aspects of clear, crisp and concise writing of grant applications. Approaches to writing sections of a grant application will be discussed and participant-submitted NIH grant application sections will be critiqued by Professor Albertine and participants in the workshop.

A more detailed schedule will be provided closer to the date.

Seats are limited so please register for the Manuscript & General Writing Workshop AND/OR the NIH Grant writing workshop by 13 May 2016.

This event is hosted by the UWA Centre for Neonatal Research and Education and the UWA Research Enterprise Office. It is also being supported by Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University, and the University of Notre Dame. Researchers from all of these institutions are encouraged to attend.
