Department of Biochemistry and Genetics 50th Anniversary Symposium and Reunion Dinner

Department of Biochemistry & Genetics 50th Anniversary Symposium & Reunion Dinner

The Department of Biochemistry and Genetics is hosting a Symposium and Reunion Dinner to celebrate 50 years of scientific research and teaching at La Trobe University. This event features speakers of prominence from each of the past five decades, a mix of former and current students and staff of the Departments of Biochemistry and Genetics. Rather than a focused scientific meeting, the symposium will be a celebration of the University, and of lives and careers nurtured and forged on the Melbourne campus. It is anticipated that the event will be both entertaining and inspiring, providing an opportunity for many alumni and former staff to reconnect with former colleagues and engage with current staff and students. The Reunion Dinner will be held in The Odeon, Union Building, Melbourne Campus (Bundoora) and all current and former staff and students of the Departments (Biochemistry and Genetics) are welcome. Partners are also welcome. Both the symposium and reunion dinner are ticketed events.
