BLiSS is a one-day event aimed at catalysing cross-disciplinary collaborations between early- and mid-career researchers. On Oct 4th 2019, BLiSS*Adelaide was launched, featuring exceptional lectures, poster sessions, and stalls of service providers and Universities. With over 150 registrations representing more than six institutions, the Adelaide scientific community came out in force to find new scientific collaborations. SAHMRI participated with excellent representation by Dr Randall Grose (ACRF research fellow), Dr Susan Porter (Manager PIRL) and Dr Marianne Keller (NIF Facility Fellow). Many of the posters featured data from SAHMRI’s small animal imaging equipment, and many attendees showed interest in the imaging modalities available through the NIF network such as high-resolution small animal MRI.
