Congratulations to the team on their swag of talks and awards at the Australasian Proteomics Society (APS) conference this year. Gene was invited to give a talk in the session on model organism proteomics, and PhD students excelled. Joshua Hamey was selected to give a full talk, and was awarded a ‘Students of APS’ (SOAPS) prize. Daniela Smith was selected to give a lightning talk and was also awarded the judges’ unanimous prize for best poster. Aidan Tay also won a poster prize for his outstanding work. PhD student Daniel Winter didn’t win a prize this time, but did win a prize at the same conference last year!
