VLSCI Provides Opportunity for Students to Meet Dame Linda Partridge

VLSCI Provides Opportunity for Students to Attend Graeme Clark Oration and Meet Dame Linda Partridge

The 2012 Graeme Clark Oration was delivered by Professor Dame Linda Partridge at the Melbourne Convention Centre on the 18th July. Dame Linda explored the science of ageing, and research from around the world that is helping us understand the genes and mechanisms that contribute to a long healthy lifespan. The oration is an initiative of the ICT for Life Sciences Forum. If you were unable to attend the oration, the webcast is available for free download.

In addition to being a major sponsor of the event, the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI) invited a group of students and teachers to attend the oration and dinner, and tour the supercomputer before the event. The students were very excited to meet Dame Linda as well as researchers using the supercomputer.
