HRI’s PhD Student Jessica Maclean won Best Oral Presentation at the joint scientific meeting of the Australian Vascular Biology Society (AVBS), the Australia/New Zealand Microcirculation Society (ANZMS) and the Asia/Australia Vascular Biology Meeting (AAVBM).

Jessica's winning presentation was entitled the ‘Investigation of Recanalization and Cerebral Perfusion with Adjunctive Thrombolytic Therapies in the iCAT In Vivo Model of Ischemic Stroke’ and attributes her success to her research group, Thrombosis.

I was excit­ed and sur­prised to receive Best Oral Award and thank the organ­is­ers of AVBS for the oppor­tu­ni­ty to present our work in such a pos­i­tive and engag­ing envi­ron­ment. I par­tic­u­lar­ly want to thank all team mem­bers involved in this project, with spe­cial thanks to Pro­fes­sor Shaun Jack­son, Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor Simone Schoen­waelder, Mr Ben­jamin Hof­ma and Dr Amelia Tomkins.”

The event was co-chaired by a national organising committee including HRI researchers Simone Schoenwaelder and Sian Cartland, and involved multiple presentations from a diverse range of HRI specialists. More than 130 researchers from all over the world including NZ, Canada, US, Korea, Singapore, Japan and China attended this Joint Meeting of Vascular Biology.

I real­ly enjoyed the AVBS con­fer­ence and learn­ing from senior researchers such as Dr Con­nie Wong, Dr Paul Kubes and Pro­fes­sor Michael Hick­ey, just to name a few. I found the AVBS a great place for ECR to meet and ask ques­tions of the estab­lished sci­en­tists and be inspired with new ideas and tech­niques for my own research.”
