This is the December 2016 newsletter from the RespiTech Group at the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research. December has been a month of celebrations for the RespiTech team.
Firstly, the RespiTech group held their annual Christmas party and invited along some close collaborators to enjoy the celebrations. Dr Susan Hoe, an ex-PhD/Postdoc also joined joined us as she was visiting from the US. The group also celebrated the departure of Carola Cravedi and Cristina Pacciana, who will tour Australia briefly before returning to Italy to finish their degrees'. You are always welcome back guys! The group also attended the Woolcock's Christmas party in December to celebrate the end of the year. You can learn more about RespiTech social activities at our Facebook and Twitter pages.
As always we congratulate people for successful publications and awards. Michael Lau was the first author on a paper entitled "Investigation into the manufacture and properties of inhalable high dose dry powders produced by co-milling API and lactose with magnesium stearate" in AAPS PharmSciTech. You can learn more about our publications here. We also celebrated the graduation of Alaa Tulbah for her PhD in the official ceremony on the University of Sydney Campus.
Lastly, we celebrated the Wedding of Hui Xin Ong (YY) to Marcus in a ceremony in Malaysia. Daniela Traini, Paul Young, Yang Chen and Lily Daviskas attended the celebrations.
As we end the year the RespiTech group are looking forward to the Summer break. We wish everyone a happy vacation and prosperous new year!
