Call for reviewers of diagnostic protocols
9 National Diagnostic protocols and 18 draft protocols are due for review and/or verification, these are listed below.
If you would like to undertake one of these reviews, and can do so within a reasonable time frame, please contact the SPHD Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org) outlining the review you wish to conduct by 5:00pm AEST Friday 22 July 2016. Additionally, if you know of any other scientists with the expertise to undertake these reviews (who may not be members of the Network) please forward the details to them. Once approved by SPHD, the project manager will then negotiate times and costs directly.
