Code Number: au01043

There currently exists an extensive directory of Australian biotechnology-based companies. For many scientists and business personnel, however, the capabilities of these companies are not as apparent. For example, questions such as who has GMP capabilities? Where do I go for scale-up expertise? Who can grow up bacteria at a 500L scale? Who has yeast expression expertise? Who can carry out chromatography on a 20L ion-exchange column etc? These are all questions that may be answered rapidly if a readily accessible register of capabilities was available. Thus as a service to the people in this industry, as well as an advertising benefit to the providing organization, we are trying to coordinate a cataloguing of existing biotechnological capabilities within Australia.

Analytical services also play an important role in bioprocessing but will be part of a survey carried out at a later date.

Postgraduate Young Speakers Competition, Thursday 9th August 2001

Call for Abstracts

FBIG is continuing its tradition of offering a forum for young researchers working in fermentation and bioprocessing science to present their work to an audience of peers and colleagues working in the industry.

Up to 6 young speakers will be able to present their work in 20 minute time slots and projection facilities will be available. Speakers from any Australian university are welcome and include all postgraduates, including Honours' students. No money is available to subsidize travel. A prize will be given for the best presentation and an award will be made to all speakers.

Closing date for Abstracts is 9th July (see below for details)

A further communication in late July will confirm the program, and call for RSVPs for attendees.

Time: 3:00 - 7:30 pm followed by dinner

Date: Thursday 9th August, 2001.

Venue: Redback Hotel, Flemington Road, North Melbourne.

Guidelines for Presenters

The competition is open to all recent graduates or students enrolled in postgraduate degree-by-research projects without an age limit ("Young" means in early stages of a career). Students should be actively engaged in work that has a demonstrable fermentation or bioprocessing application in the future.

Entry to the competition will be by submission for review of a half A4 page abstract The closing date for abstracts is 9th July and they should be sent to Nick Kotlarski (Phone 03 9388 0655, email or fax 03 9388 1259).

Participants will be expected to give a presentation of 20 min with 3 min of questions, depending on the number of successful entrants. Any change in presentation time will be advised at the time of notification.

The presentation should include a clear statement of the problem and strategy with emphasis to be placed on the most up to date data and what has been achieved so far, with brief references to future strategies. A judging panel will assess: Content, Preparation, Presentation Skills.

Participants should advise on their need for an overhead projector or slide projector.
