He also hosted a film screening and director Q&A session at the Mercury Cinema, a Higher Degree Research and Early Career Researchers workshop, a tour and discussion about Flinders University’s 16mm film archive, and was part of the Contemporary Screen Cultures seminar.

Award wins boost continuing research

Dr Claire Jessup and Dr Annabelle Small, both from the College of Medicine and Public Health, appeared in the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology (ASI) quarterly newsletter March edition, recognising their recent achievements in obtaining Career Advancement Awards, which help to advance the research of student members of ASI at critical points in their career.

Dr Jessup was awarded the ASI Breakthrough Immunology Award, which will support the application of her and Dr Ricardo Fernandes’ (Oxford) approach to allotransplant rejection. “I’m extremely thankful for the Breakthrough Immunology Award from ASI at this tenuous stage in my career. Support of this project has ensured ongoing interactions with my fabulous collaborators including Prof Helen Thomas and A/Prof Stuart Mannering (St Vincent’s Institute),” said Dr Jessup.

Dr Small, an early career Research Fellow with the Department of Rheumatology at Flinders University, was one of the 2022 recipients. “I’m enormously grateful to have been awarded a 2022 ASI Postdoctoral Career Advancement Award,” says Dr Small. The financial support from this award facilitated her travel to Philadelphia in the US to attend the American Congress of Rheumatology (ACR) Annual Meeting, from 9-17 November 2022.
