Congratulations to Carmen Smith who is undertaking a MSc Research on the re-breathing of carbon dioxide in respirators who has won the student prize for her presentation abstract that she submitted to the International Society for Respiratory Protection. She receives $1000 towards travel & free registration at the ISRP conference which will be held in Boston later this year.
This is a significant accomplishment as no other Australian student has ever been awarded this student prize. It also ensures that Carmen's research is presented to the key government & industry people in the international respiratory protection field.
