Congratulations to Prof. Braithwaite who has been awarded the Shorland Medal for his outstanding contribution to science. This recognises his many years of dedicated work to understanding the functions and significance of one of our most important anti-cancer genes, the p53 gene.
Our laboratory is delighted at the renewal of funding for the Maurice Wilkins Centre for molecular biodiscovery, one of New Zealand’s Centres of Research Excellence (CoRE). Prof. Antony Braithwaite is an in-coming principal investigator for the Maurice Wilkins Centre and will contribute to the management of this key conduit for funding of biodiscovery in our country.
Congratulations to Margaret Baird who has been awarded the Derrick Rowley Medal for her service to the Australasian Society for Immunology (ASI). Margaret received this award in honour of her contributions to the ASI which have included: NZ ASI councillor, ASI newsletter editor (for many years), co-founder of Immunet which provided support for the ASI NZ branch meeting and her various roles in meeting organisation (e.g. this year’s Infection and Immunity workshop).
