PSANZ ECR Symposium at the 2015 Congress
The 2015 ECR symposium was a huge success. We had a record number of delegates (72). The theme of the meeting was: Planning your career in perinatal research and included keynote presentations from two very successful PSANZ members: Prof Mary Wlodek (Coordinator, Researcher Development at The University of Melbourne and Head, Fetal, postnatal and adult physiology and disease laboratory) andDr Rose Boland(Postdoctoral Fellow in Neonatal Care). Mary and Rose each gave informative, insightful and entertaining presentations that included tips and tricks for transitioning from an early career researcher to principal investigator, managing a research team and work-life balance. The event finished with drinks and canapés, and attendees had the opportunity to mingle with invited perinatal research mentors from Australia and New Zealand, including Mary and Rose. A big thank you to PSANZ for supporting the evening and the PSANZ secretariat (Corporate Communiqué) for their assistance in organising the event.
