East Coast Protein Meeting, 2005
In the 1990's, the Sydney Protein Group used to join forces with their Queensland counterparts to hold the East Coast Protein Meeting in Byron Bay. In 2003, the Qld people revived the idea and we held a 2-day meeting at the Novatel Opal Cove in Coffs Harbour.
The meeting was a great success and the SPG organized the 2005 meeting at the same venue. A number of people from our lab - most prominantly Flyp and Sharon - organized the meeting and made a great job of it.
The focus of the meeting is to give PhD students and postdocs a chance to present their work in a conference setting, as well as to have two invited speakers from out of town to liven things up. This year we had Jackie Wilce and Trevor Lithgow, who both gave great talks and got involved with the students (in the nicest possible way).
These are a bunch of photos that Ann snapped - once you give her the camera it can be hard to get it back off her...
