ASMR Vic Student Symposium

June 1

The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research

1G Royal Parade, Parkville Victoria 3052

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.

June 8

InterContinental Hotel The Rialto Melbourne

495 Collins Street, Melbourne 3000

Featuring our Keynote Speaker,  ASMR Medalist 2017

Professor Richard Wilkinson – Scientist, Author and Advocate

Professor Wilkinson is Professor Emeritus of Social Epidemiology at the University of Nottingham, co-founder of The Equality Trust and auther of the international bestseller “The Spirit Level”.  Throughout a distinguished career examining the social determinants of health, Professor Wilkinson’s research has uncovered that economic inequality is the key driver for numerous health (and social) problems in developed countries such as Australia.  The identification of this strong causal relationship has commanded a re-think of policy development with a renewed focus on addressing the underlying problem rather than treating specific health and social problems as unrelated phenomena.
