“I find the AGITG Annual Scientific Meeting to be an invaluable learning experience. Like many things, what you put in correlates with what you take away. My efforts to submit a new concept proposal were rewarded when it was selected for oral presentation at the New Concepts Symposium at the 2014 meeting. This led to invaluable feedback and ongoing support from the AGITG which has ultimately led to a completed protocol and a study opening to recruitment in March 2018. This is such an exciting outcome for my research career and I have the AGITG to thank for it. The invited faculty is always first class and this meeting provides ample opportunity to network with the faculty (from Australia and overseas) hence learn so much more than just what is delivered in lectures. I can thoroughly recommend attendance at the AGITG Annual Scientific Meeting.”
