Austrade Indonesia Education Workshop and University of Airlangga Research Showcase

Earlier this month several of SEIB's senior members participated in 'Austrade Indonesia Education Workshop Series: Health Workshop in Emerging Infectious Diseases' at the Australian embassy, Jakarta. The two day workshop ran from April 7 - 8.

Later that week members of SEIB contributed presentations in infectious diseases research (in dengue, tuberculosis, malaria and arbovirus, hepatitis, HIV, and zoonoses) at a research showcase in Surabaya. The showcase included contributions from University of Sydney academics and PhD students and colleagues from Airlangga University, the University of Indonesia, the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology and Gadjah Mada University.

It is hoped that the two day research showcase will lead to future research collaborations between Australia and Indonesia.
