To the Australian Science Communicators,


Hello, my name is Christine El-Khoury and I’m one of the Producers with ABC TV’s Q&A. Hosted by Tony Jones Q&A is the show where YOU ask the questions of a panel of politicians, pundits and opinion-makers. We go live to air every Monday night at 9.35pm on ABC television. I was hoping you might be able to circulate the below information amongst your networks. We have a science show coming up and we want to make sure we have engaged and knowledgeable members of the science community participating in the discussion.


On Monday 15th September ABC TV’s Q&A will host a special science edition live from the ABC studios in Ultimo from 8.30pm.


We are calling on the science community to get involved in the discussion by joining the audience and submitting questions for our panel.


On the panel:

Distinguished Professor at ANU’s Mount Stromlo Observatory Brian Schmidt and winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize for Physics

Molecular Biologist Suzanne Cory who is delivering this ABC’s Boyer Lecture series this year

Immunologist and Nobel Prize winner Peter Doherty who has dedicated his life to improving global health

And 2012 Young  Australian of the Year Merita Cheng who founded Robogals to engage girls in engineering, science and technology


Anyone interested in joining the live studio can register here and we’ll be in touch with more information:


Thanks for your help spreading the word.


Kind regards,



Christine El-Khoury
