2019 Symposium

Message from the RBWH Research Ambassador and Chair, Herston Health Precinct Symposium

Professor Jeff Lipman

We are delighted to present the Herston Health Precinct Symposium 2020. Our focus is to better link all Herston Health Precinct and their collaborators, by “Partnering into the future: looking up, reaching out”.

We have moved the date to December given the current COVID-19 concerns but hope to welcome you all to participate and engage in the packed week-long program.

The format has changed a little from 2019 with international keynote lectures, tele-presentations, e-posters and multidisciplinary symposia, all of which will be available live through Zoom.

We will promote the event across our vast networks by partnering and reaching out to all colleagues of the Herston Health Precinct and with collaborators across the nation and the globe. We invite you all to join us either remotely or in person at the RBWH Education Centre and The University of Queensland Centre for Clinical Research (UQCCR).

We welcome the contribution of the many session coordinators as well as the value added by the technology and scientific committees.

For our more junior staff and particularly young researchers, there will be concurrent sessions through-out the week, to support you in starting the exciting research journey of improving how you manage your increasingly difficult patient disease profiles.

We look forward to you joining us.
