ANS2021 Cover 02

Reconnecting the Network boosted : we are excited to announce the ANS 2022 Conference will be held in Melbourne 5-7th December.

It was unfortunate last year not being able to hold the in-person ANS 2021 Conference. However, it’s a new year and we are optimistic that 2022 represents the year we will be able to reconnect the Australasian Neuroscience community in-person.

 The value of medical research and discovery neuroscience has never been more important. We hope this meeting will reunite the neuroscience community to reflect and celebrate the 40th year of ANS, and the outstanding scientific contributions and discoveries our researchers continue to make.

Our Local Organising Committee, chaired jointly by Associate Professor Jess Nithianantharajah and Professor Zane Andrews, are working to ensure that ANS2022 in Melbourne brings together a stimulating 3-day scientific program of international and national plenaries, as well as symposia, oral and poster presentations on diverse neuroscience themes from researchers across career stages. Set in the atmospheric Pullman Hotel in Albert Park, our goal is to create an environment and social program that promotes and supports networking and the connectivity we have missed.

So let’s Reconnect the Network2 ! We look forward to reconnecting with you in person in December 2022!

Australian Neuroscience Teaching Survey

Do you teach neuroscience, or coordinate a unit which includes neuroscience, at an Australian university? We are Australian neuroscientists and academics conducting a study to ascertain the training and experience of academics, researchers and clinicians teaching neuroscience in Australian universities. This information could be used by the academic community to improve resources and training to support people who teach tertiary neuroscience.

We are inviting all people teaching neuroscience, or coordinating the teaching of neuroscience, at an Australian university to participate in the study. To ensure a broad cross-section of people teaching neuroscience, we include anyone teaching neuroscience, even if your primary role is not teaching, or if your primary field of teaching is not neuroscience.

Participation involves completion of a short online survey (10-15 mins) which can be accessed here:

Survey responses are anonymous and you can enter a draw to win one of six $50 Westfield or JB Hi-Fi gift vouchers.

The survey can be completed by anyone who teaches any neuroscience at an Australian university, including casual staff and students, so please share among your neuroscience teaching colleagues.
