Alfred Health Week kicks off on Monday 18 June, with a range of special events and displays showcasing the exciting research carried out across the Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct (AMREP), a collaborative alliance which includes Alfred Health, Monash University, Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute, Burnet Institute, Deakin University and La Trobe University.
Together with their research and clinical colleagues on the precinct, and often in concert with others nationally and internationally, AMREP researchers are at the cutting edge of health innovation, tackling some of the most challenging issues of our time and making important advances which have real impact on the lives of people, not just here in Melbourne, but across Victoria, Australia and around the world.
From Monday afternoon until Friday, more than 170 research posters will be on display starting in the main corridor of The Alfred, leading around into the Centre Block Corridor bordering The Alfred’s internal courtyard, and along into the AMREP Education Centre. You can read the abstracts relating to these projects here.
Spanning everything from asthma to cardiac surgery, and from communicable diseases to nursing, the posters detail just some of the hundreds of projects carried out in one year at AMREP.
So, if you are at The Alfred this week, make sure you take a walk through the corridors to experience the quality, diversity and importance of our research for yourself.
