This networking event is for scientists, AAAS members, and science enthusiasts wanting to make personal and professional connections in their local community both inside and outside their own disciplines. Over the course of this year AAAS will be launching a series of these local events in cities around the world.
Our special guest speaker for this Sydney event is AAAS member David James, a cell biologist who discovered the glucose transporter GLUT4. His research focuses on the link between insulin receptor signalling and glucose uptake into muscle and fat cells. James is a researcher at Garvan Institute of Medical Research and an adjunct professor at The University of New South Wales.
Following the lecture, we will be holding a cocktail reception, giving you the opportunity to network with the speaker and other attendees.
Join us, and your AAAS colleagues from the Sydney area, for a night of stimulating science and great conversation.
