The School of Translational Health Science is proud to announce one of our HDR students, Erica Tilley (Feb 2014 Intake) was awarded a prize at the recent Florey Postgraduate Research Conference for the high standard of her poster presentation. The conference was a huge success with well over 100 PhD and Research Masters students presenting posters of their research, including 10 students from Nagoya University in Japan and the University of Freiburg, Germany. We congratulate Erica for her outstanding presentation.

A reminder about the Postgraduate Research Conference, there’s only a week left for poster registration!! Closing date is now 4 August 2014.
This occasion should not be overlooked as there is significant benefit to students presenting at this competition. This conference is a highly regarded event across the University, attended by postgraduate students, honours students, industry partners, researchers and academics. The event will be held on 25th September at the National Wine Centre of Australia and it’s anticipated the program will be even bigger this year, showcasing the work of many of the University’s research postgraduate students enrolled in the Faculty of Health Science. HDR Students enrolled prior to 2013 are strongly encouraged to register and test their presentation skills at this special event. At the very least, students will walk away with a positive experience, an improved academic profile, and another achievement to add to their C.V.

Background and Aims
The school has recently been presented with the results of the survey initiated by the student rep group, and via Lyle as head of school had a discussion with the student representatives. Firstly, it is good and helpful to have data of this nature, without which much of our planning may be based on anecdotal feedback (or consensus by volume of noise). We hope to see more surveys (and run a few this year also). One of the areas that seems to be a common concern for students is the third day programme of student presentations; presenters have their own concerns, while more widely the feedback was that this day could be re-considered. We are, via the School HDR Committee very prepared to discuss the structure, seek to clarify the purposes of research school and what we believe to be the value add these events can bring. However, at this stage we have decided to cancel the seminar programme for day three of this Augusts research school.
In doing so, please be aware that time away from work can be difficult to arrange, so we hope very much that you treat this as a study day. There is a large amount of space in JBI, with fully networked, resourced computers and we would be delighted to see as many as possible of you in JBI on the last day, continuing your research. I apologise for the late notice, however, having recently seen the survey feedback, and needing to discuss it at executive, this was the earliest available time to get the message out. For those looking for an opportunity to develop their research presentation skills, and otherwise engage, please do register for the faculty research symposium in September (http://health.adelaide.edu.au/research/conference/program/)
