ASMR Vic Student Symposium

May 31

Royal Melbourne Hospital, Parkville

8am to 6pm


A showcase symposium where all Victorian health and medical research students can present their work to an audience of their peers, and network with and listen to some of Victoria’s top medical researchers in a friendly, approachable and cooperative scientific environment.

Participating students foster collaborations and network, increasing the awareness of the expertise and research being conducted around Victoria.

During the symposium, research students participate in oral or poster presentations, as well as the popular ‘3 minute thesis’ styled presentations – where students must effectively explain their research, with one PowerPoint slide, in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

Presentations are judged by a panel of senior academics and post-docs, with attractive monetary prizes awarded for outstanding work.

ASMR Medical Research Week® Dinner

June 6


Cargo Hall, South Wharf

Featuring our Keynote Speaker,  ASMR Medalist 2018 Dr Elizabeth Finkel

In 1982, Elizabeth Finkel was awarded ASMR’s Campion Ma Playoust Award and now, as a distinguished Australian science journalist, we recognise  her contributions to science communications as the ASMR Medalist 2019. In accepting our invitation, she said, I hadn’t been able to express how gobsmacked I was that the sort of things I used to do to fruit flies at USCF – supply them with new genes – are now being done in people to achieve ‘biblical’ results.  Toddlers born with SMA (spinal muscular atrophy), who should be crippled or dead, are walking.  I was thinking I needed a forum to get the message out: this is where blue sky research leads. Now I have one”.

The winner of the Commonwealth Health Minister’s Award for Excellence in Health and Medical Research
will be announced at the dinner
