Queenstown’s Dinamics hosts country’s leading scientists

Queenstown’s Dinamics hosts country’s leading scientists to share knowledge with local community

Queenstown’s premier event management company Dinamics is hosting a free public lecture this month with the country’s leading specialists in scientific research.

The lecture is entitled ‘Latest research advances in cancer, diabetes and brain disease’ and will be held at St. Peters Parish Hall in Earl Street Queenstown on Monday 25 August 2014 from 11.30am – 1.00pm.

Registration is free but space is limited and a light lunch provided. Contact elizabeth@dinamics.co.nz or call 03 441 1515 to register your attendance.

The lecture is a direct result of Dinamics’ involvement with the biggest gathering of New Zealand medical scientists which has been hosted in Queenstown for the last 24 years.

This years’ iteration is Queenstown Research Week, held 24 -29 August 2014, and will see over 800 scientists from all over New Zealand and the world converge on the town.

Locally-based Dinamics organises the event each year and for the first time is sponsoring a public lecture series which will inform people about the latest advances in research in a format suitable for all members of the public.

Dinamics’ owner and director Alastair McIlwrick said previously the large event had “largely gone unnoticed in Queenstown”.

“The event is huge and brings together the world leaders in science right to our shores, yet many locals wouldn’t know it was happening,” he said.

“We’re privileged to have Professors Richard Faull and Peter Shepherd generously donate their time to inform and educate the Queenstown community on the key advances in cancer, diabetes and brain disease.”
