Dr Samantha Nixon, one of our Research Fellows from the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, has recently been chosen as the runner-up in the FameLab International 2021 science communication competition. FameLab is an annual competition run in over 22 countries that aims to discover and promote early career scientists who can explain their research in engaging ways to broad audiences. Sam presented about her research turning spider venoms into antiparasitic drugs and progressed through state and national levels as well as international heats before representing Australia in the final on November 25th. FameLab is the largest science communication in the world and placing second in the global final is a huge achievement, many congratulations to Sam!
