Our Brisbane SBA seminar at the iconic Precinct on February 10, 2023, was a smashing success, with a fantastic turnout of 45 attendees. The highlight of the event was undoubtedly the two incredible guest speakers, who shared their groundbreaking research and left the audience in awe.
Claudia Vickers, the Chief Scientific Officer of Eden Brew, wowed us with her insights into the innovative world of animal-free dairy and precision fermentation. Her talk was a game-changer for anyone interested in the future of sustainable food.
But the excitement didn't stop there. Madeline Smith, a Master's student at QUT, shared her groundbreaking research on microorganisms and how they can be used to create high-value chemical compounds. Her insights left us feeling hopeful for the future of science.
But this seminar wasn't just about academic presentations. We also had the chance to network with other like-minded individuals and hear from Claudia Vickers about the challenges and considerations of academic-industry collaborations. And to top it off, we indulged in some delicious pizza and beer, making the evening both informative and enjoyable.
This seminar was open to everyone, regardless of scientific background. So why not join us for our next event? You won't want to miss out on an evening of fascinating science, great food, and even better vibes.
