Congratulations to Dr Devan Kumarasamy from Petronas in Malaysia who received the David Goddard Best Paper Award at the ANZSOM Annual Scientific Meeting in Adelaide this week.
Thank you to all the delegates who travelled far and wide to join with us in Adelaide this week to celebrate what is the essence of ANZSOM - learning, collaboration and friendship. The numbers say it all with a record attendance of 200 delegates, 21 sponsors and 42 speakers.
