Congratulations to Dr Michael Smout from James Cook University for taking out Australia’s first FameLab competition on Tuesday night in Fremantle, WA.
Michael and his research story on cancer-causing liver worms will be heading to the UK in June to represent Australia at the International FameLab competition held at the Times Cheltenham Science Festival.
He’ll be needing some extra luggage allowance to take his props with him.
Congratulations to all the finalists, and to the runner-up Tim Brennan from The University of Queensland.
You’ll be hearing more about Michael’s work and other Fresh Science stories in the coming weeks.
