What our members and conference attendees have to say about the SSBP.

Attending the SSBP 21st conference in Melbourne was extremely interesting with a wide breadth of research focussing on rare genetic syndromes being discussed. I found it to be a welcoming place to present my research, and the questions and comments from the audience have helped me develop my ideas further.

 

I am grateful for the SSBP for awarding me the Les and Robbie Fountain bursary as without this support I would not have been able to attend the conference.
