Dr Anita Dunbier will be giving a public talk about aspirin and breast cancer as part of a presentation by up-and-coming researchers at the University of Otago.
The O-Zone Group is presenting a one hour programme of six speakers who have distinguished themselves as early career researchers. Each presenter will give a glimpse into their research and explain how their work benefits the public. The talks last six minutes each followed by a brief time for questions.
The event is being held on Wednesday 15 July, from 5.30-6.30pm at the Barnett Lecture Theatre in Dunedin Hospital. The presentations will be followed by drinks and nibbles to allow guests to meet and talk with the researchers. There is no cost to attend.
The titles of the talks are:
