Now in our third year, we have social mixers, swarm regularly at Lorne Proteins, host international speakers and each run an AGM on a shoestring budget that are heaps of fun. AGM 2020 was at UWA Albany, AGM2021 was at ECU Bunbury. Late 2021 we hosted a seminar by UQ's Evelyne Deplazes at Curtin. Please e-mail us to join the contact list or DM @PerthProteins
On 26-27 October we held AGM2022 at the Curtin Graduate School of Business in Perth city. Congratulations to our 2022 prize-winners and to our keynote speakers John Bruning and Alice Vrielink. All our news will be on our Twitter feed. It's even a great place to ask for equipment in WA, see example 1 and example 2 for two successful exemplar posts! Harness the power of social media!
At AGM2022 we got some fresh blood! Josh Mylne passed the chairpserson role to Mark Agostino. Abi Ghifari passed the treasurer role Joel Haywood. In 2023 Cytiva are coming for a protein and AKTA workshop plus Twitter-celeb Brady Johnston might teach us molecular nodes in Blender. We look after our ASBMB members, so be sure you are up to date with your ASBMB membership!
We're always looking for members of the Perth protein community to get involved, especially when it comes to taking charge of PPG events, e-mail email@example.com to express your interest.
Join the ASBMB
We encourage all Perth protein scientists to join the ASBMB and remember to tick the box next to "Perth Protein Group" in the Special Interest Groups section as this forms the basis of their support for our events. If you're already a member, forgot to tick the box or were unable to, just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we can update your ASBMB profile with PPG membership. Did you know first year HDR students get a year of membership free if their supervisor is an ASBMB member. Also students get additional benefits from joining ASBMB, to see them click here.
