Event Description

Full Description:
'Dark Matter – Exploring how officials learn their craft' will be presented by Katherine O’Brien, the recipient of the 2016/17 HMNS Dr Alf Howard International Travel Scholarship Award.
Katherine is currently completing her PhD, with Prof Mallett and Dr Rynne. Her project looks at how NRL officials learn their craft. More specifically, conceptualising officiating as ‘work’ has provided a dynamic platform through which the action, culture, and context of each individual’s daily pedagogical practice can be explored.

'Is less more? Fasting as an adjuvant of cancer chemotherapy: rationale and early clinical evidence' will be presented by Dr Veronique Chachay, a lecturer in nutrition science and researcher at HMNS.
Clinical evidence is now emerging on the molecular mechanisms of action behind the health benefits of fasting. These mechanisms have now found application in the treatment of cancer, whereby fasting combined to chemotherapy appears to enhance the effects on tumours, whilst limiting the side effects on healthy tissue.
