February news for Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Modelling

Wednesday 1 March 2017


Welcome to the 2017 MAE cohort!  We have 17 new MAE students this year and it is very exciting to see them settle in.   Many thanks to all who have agreed to supervise.

Lots of staff members have been busy this month with grant and fellowship applications – ARC deadline is in the next few days and NHMRC is coming up soon afterwards.  

Martyn Kirk, Katie Glass and Deb Wong are having many meetings with collaborators for our Campylobacter Partnership Grant – we’re getting close to being able to start sequencing isolates, which is very exciting.
