EMBL Australia are delighted to announce that ten postgraduate students have been awarded travel grants to travel to EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, to attend the 18th EMBL student PhD symposium, L1f3 by Numb3r5, Towards Quantitative Biology. The symposium is being held November 17th–19th, 2016.

There were 42 very high calibre applicants, and as usual it was very difficult to separate the students. The applicants were judged by the quality of their motivation statement and their curriculum vitae (CV). 

Travel grants were awarded to five female and five male applicants, and from around Australia as follows: ACT (1), NSW (3), QLD (3), VIC (2) and WA (1). The student symposium is an excellent training opportunity as well as a great opportunity to develop international networks and alliances.

Congratulations to all the successful recipients, we look forward to hearing about your experiences on your return.
