Prof Simon Easteal gave a well-attended public lecture at The John Curtin School of Medical Research on 25 May entitled The National Centre for Indigneous Genomics: a national resource for Indigenous health and heritage.
The Foyer of The John Curtin School of Medical Research, arguably something of a work of art in itself, was the impressive backdrop for a preview of Indigenous art later auctioned at Sunday Dreaming, a fundraising event held at Government House on Sunday 3 May.
