Join Dr Tatiana Soares da Costa at the Castlemaine Historic Market Building
as she discusses her recent research in the midst of artwork by Damien Shen + Robert Hague.

This event is one of four LAI Field Talks at the Castlemaine State Festival. In these talks, leading Latrobe academics discuss their field of research in parallel to contemporary visual arts in the festival.

Dr Soares da Costa is a Research Fellow and Group Leader in the Department of Biochemistry and Genetics at the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science. Her laboratory focuses on the development new classes of antibiotics and herbicides to avert the rise in resistance. She has expertise across the fields of biochemistry, biophysics, chemistry, drug discovery, plant biology and microbiology.

Damien Shen + Robert Hague are both artists, fathers, husbands and brothers but share little in their DNA or geographical and cultural backgrounds. They are about as different as you can get: one a South Australian man of Ngarrindjeri and Chinese bloodlines, the other a New Zealand migrant born from Irish and English stock. Their collaboration simultaneously highlights their shared humanity and friendship whilst also drawing attention to biological difference.
