Education & Training program


The CBNS runs a range of education and training activities for our students and early career researchers. These include training on how to use particular scientific tools, seminars on current research and workshops on communication for scientists.

Information about our current activities can be found under Upcoming Events. We also keep an archive of past events and activities.

The education and training needs of CBNS members are coordinated by the CBNS Education & Training Committee. It is chaired by CBNS Chief Investigator Professor Maria Kavallaris AM (UNSW). The committee is formed of members from across all nodes with each node being represented by a postdoctorate researcher and PhD student.

The committee meets monthly to discuss and plan for education and training events. If you would like to contribute please contact Professor Maria Kavallaris AM, Senior Coordinator Events and Communications Samantha Snowden-Finch or one of the committee members.
