Students from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology enjoyed success at the recent Australasian Society for Immunology (ASI) conference in Perth, Australia.
Dr Judith Bateup recently visited James Hargest High School in Southland and Fiordland College in Te Anau as part of our High School outreach programme. The year 11 and year 13 classes enjoyed a hands-on programme looking at the “unseen world” of microorganisms on their teeth. This programme uses high-powered oil-immersion microscopy that is usually not available in secondary schools. As part of the outreach programme last year Judith visited schools in the Central Otago region and next year North Otago schools are on the agenda.
