Members of the Ritchie Centre attended the 31st Fetal and Neonatal Workshop of Australia and New Zealand in Canberra last week. The workshop encouraged students and ECRs to discuss new ideas and present their work in an informal multidisciplinary forum. Organised by Monash University, the workshop brought together senior and junior researchers from across Australia and New Zealand.
This year 11 of the 31 presentations were from the Ritchie Centre and all of our students and ECRs gave fantastic presentations - with many presenting for the first time at a conference. Erin McGillick was joint winner of the ECR best presentation award, Nadia Bellofiore won the late PhD student presentation and Mikee Inocencio and Lara Rijkmans were joint winners of the early PhD award. Congratulations to everyone for an exciting and scientifically stimulating meeting!
