Eureka Science Superstars Talk at the Australian Museum
Wednesday, August 11, 2010
The Australian Museum invites you to join us at a special presentation given by two young scientists who are finalists in this year's Australian Museum Eureka Prizes.
Doctors Amanda Barnard and Rowena Martin will be leaving their labs to talk to us onsite at the Museum about the inspiring work they are doing. This is a great opportunity to hear firsthand about their research and to pick the brains of Australia's female science superstars.
Dr Amanda Barnard is at the forefront of investigating how to develop sunscreens that are transparent but still offer the same protection of the heavy white war paint we are used to. She has been selected as a finalist for the Eureka Prize for Scientific Research for her work.
Dr Rowena Martin is a finalist in the Eureka Prize for Early Career Research. Her research into the emergence of malaria parasites that are resistant to cheap anti-malarial drugs has led to discoveries about how this resistance is caused and how it can be overcome.
RSVPs to this exclusive talk are essential, so email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 16 August to secure your place.
Date: Wednesday 18 August
Time: 11.30 - 12.30
