The ARC Training Centre for Personalised Therapeutics Technologies are delighted to host a satellite event in Melbourne for the “Materials, Mimics, and Microfluidics” conference (3M 2021). Our event will be held virtually, due to the recent COVID outbreaks, and will take place on July 21 – 23, complementing the times of the main 3M 2021 conference.

The Melbourne Satellite event will feature two activities:

  1. Local research presentations. These will be held in the morning (10 – 11.30am each day) and feature two local speakers (30min presentations) per session, followed by a moderated Q&A panel. This will be a fantastic opportunity for researchers and students to engage and talk about not only the research presented, but also the state of this field, and what capabilities we have right here in Melbourne. Our local presenters are:
  • Wednesday July 21st: Professor Nico Voelcker (Monash University) & Associate Professor Jessica Frith (Monash University)
  • Thursday July 22nd: Associate Professor Kathryn Stok (University of Melbourne) & Dr David Collins (University of Melbourne)
  • Friday July 23rd: Professor Andrea O’Connor (University of Melbourne) and Dr Vijay Rajagopal (University of Melbourne)

2. Rapid-fire student/postdoc presentations. Presentations will be held during the lunchtime break of the main conference (2pm AEST) via Zoom, and each presenter will have up to 5min to present their research. Prizes are on offer for the best presentation!
