Natasha Rogers, the SA State winner and National winner 2010 was awarded her PhD in February 2011, four days after giving birth to her second child. She explains that “I have subsequently moved with my family to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania to undertake postdoctoral research on a CJ Martin fellowship from the NHMRC. I am broadening my skills base in two new laboratories, in transplantation immunology and vascular biology, and hope to bring these techniques and collaborations back with me to Australia. I am very grateful to AusBiotech and GSK as the award enabled me to attend the American Transplant Congress (arguably the best international transplantation conference) in Philadelphia, to present my work to an international audience and receive valuable feedback.” In fact, Natasha was awarded a ‘poster of distinction’ at the conference.
