Welcome to PSANZ 2023

On behalf of the local organising committee and the PSANZ Board, I am delighted to share that we have been very busy behind the scenes in preparation for the 2023 PSANZ annual congress in Melbourne, Victoria.

Inspired by the vibrancy and architecture of Melbourne, and the diversity and breadth of the pathways we all strive to improve care and outcomes for women and their babies, our theme, “Laneways to better perinatal Outcomes” aims to take you on a journey of innovative perinatal research and care. We promise there will be something for every singles member of PSANZ at the congress!

Sing Sing Way, MD, PhD, is the Pauline and Lawson Reed Chair of the Division of Infectious Diseases and a Professor of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Dr. Way is an expert in the immunological basis for recurrent pregnancy loss and the roles of regulatory T cells in maintaining immune tolerance to the fetus during pregnancy.

Jennifer K. Richer, PhD, from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, where she is a Professor of Pathology and Co-Leader of the Tumor Host Interactions Program at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. Dr. Richer is an expert on the roles of estrogen receptors (ER), androgen receptors (AR) and microRNAs in breast cancer pathogenesis and harnessing of this knowledge to improve breast cancer responsiveness to endocrine therapy. Her research on the AR in breast cancer has led to two investigator initiated clinical trials

In addition to the scientific sessions, we will host numerous Career Development activities including Career Development Workshops, Mentor-in-a-Cloud, an Early Career Forum and a Mid-Career Forum on Wednesday, and our highly successful Connection Corners on Thursday evening.

Stay tuned for more details regarding over 75+ travel awards!
