Congratulations to Céline d’Orgeville, AFRAN member and laureate of the Translational Fellowships Programme

The ANU Translational Fellowship Program aims to advance promising researchers and promote enhanced opportunities for diverse career pathways within and alongside government, end-users and industry. This program, aligned with the ANU Strategic Plan, aims to break down the barriers between universities, society and industry, and to provide the support and incentive for researchers to take their ideas outside the University.

The Program is designed to allow and support researchers to move seamlessly between industry, government, business and academic settings.

Congratulations to Associate Professor Celine d’Orgeville (RSAA) who has been awarded $600,000 over 3 years to develop translational research with partners outside academia. Celine develops novel laser technologies for laser guide star adaptive optics applications in astronomy, space surveillance, and laser communications.

Are you a Superstar of STEM?

Thirty #womeninscience are being offered support and training to become superstars of STEM and role models for the next generation.

Superstars of STEM will smash society’s gender assumptions about scientists and increase the public visibility of women in STEM.

Science and Technology Australia (STA) are looking for 30 of the nation’s most dynamic scientists and technologists to create role models for young women and girls.

They’ll receive training in advanced communication skills and have opportunities to use them – in the media, on the stage, and in speaking with decision-makers.

Applications close on 23 May and full information is available on the STA website.
