ASMR Medalist 2019

ASMR Medalist 2019 – Dr Elizabeth Finkel

In 1982, Elizabeth Finkel was awarded ASMR’s Campion Ma Playoust Award and now, as a distinguished Australian science journalist, we recognise  her contributions to science communications as the ASMR Medalist 2019. In accepting our invitation, she said, I hadn’t been able to express how gobsmacked I was that the sort of things I used to do to fruit flies at USCF – supply them with new genes – are now being done in people to achieve ‘biblical’ results.  Toddlers born with SMA (spinal muscular atrophy), who should be crippled or dead, are walking.  I was thinking I needed a forum to get the message out: this is where blue sky research leads. Now I have one”.

The 2019 Medalist will speak at Gala Dinners across the country and at the National Press Club of Australia.
