The ASM is proud to announce the 2011 winners of the Burnet-Hayes Postgraduate Travel Award and the Millis–Colwell Postgraduate Travel Award


Dr. Sophie Octavia from the University of New South Wales has been awarded the Millis–Colwell Award and Andrew Liew from the University of Technology, Sydney has been awarded the Burnet–Hayes Post graduate Award.

These recently initiated awards provide funding  for postgraduate or recently graduated members of ASM to  to attend the American Society for Microbiology meeting in the USA (Millis-Colwell award) and  Society for General Microbiology in the UK (Burnet-Hayes award) and to visit a research laboratory in that country to either extend or initiate research collaboration. This is a reciprocal exchange award program whereby the corresponding societies overseas allow one of their members to attend the annual ASM meeting in Australia and visit a lab of their choice in our country.

Congratulations to both successful applicants in a highly competitive round of applications.
