ASMR NSW Gala Dinner

June 4


This year, the ASMR Newcastle Committee are organising bus transport to and from the Sydney Dinner.

Dr Elizabeth Finkel, ASMR Medalist 2019 will be speaking at the dinner and we hope many of the community will join us to attend this celebration of health and medical research.

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”.
