As Taylor Swift wisely said, “Just because you made a good plan doesn’t mean that’s what’s going to happen.”

 

Unfortunately Professor Nicola Spurrier has regrettably had to cancel her guest speaker presentation as a result of a national health committee meeting now being scheduled at the same time.    

 

 Guest Speaker Professor Suzanne Watt

 

 

Suzanne Watt


We are very fortunate to have Suzanne (Sue) Watt PhD, FRCPath Emeritus Professor of Haematology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom and Adjunct Professor, SAHMRI and University of Adelaide now as our guest speaker to recognise International Women’s Day 2021.

 

The Long and Winding Road

Suzanne will share with us details of the outstanding women scientists who changed science and influenced her career, she will also talk about her leading research and how she encountered Coronaviruses.

Having lived in the UK for 40 years, Suzanne was in the process of returning to live in Australia when the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Thankfully she arrived in Adelaide in March last year and has since decided to settle here.
