Researchers Professor Eric Gowans and Dr Danushka Wijesundara from the Virology team at the Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research both recently attended national and international conferences thanks to The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF).
Currently undergoing research to develop a HIV vaccine, Prof Gowans was invited to present his results at the annual Australian Society for HIV Medicine.
“The support from THRF enabled me to attend this session and present the work from my laboratory to a group of informed individuals with expertise in HIV vaccine design. This was invaluable as it presented the opportunity for potential collaborations,” Prof Gowans said.
Travelling across the world to America, Dr Wijesundara spoke at two conferences about his DNA vaccines, the first being the 20th Upstate New York Immunology Conference and the Vaccines R&D-2017 Conference in Washington DC.
“Presenting my research on a number of occasions to world-leading researchers in this field was invaluable. I obtained useful feedback from researchers as well as interest in collaborating with our laboratory,” Dr Wijesundara said.
“I am grateful for the opportunity THRF provided me which enabled me to develop academic and industry collaborations that will benefit our research in the laboratory.”
