This year’s Alfred Health Week has been postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Alfred Health Week is an annual event that showcases all the research that happens on the Alfred Research Alliance here in Melbourne. It celebrates the researchers and clinicians making a real impact to healthcare locally, nationally and internationally through their innovative research.
Unfortunately, the event has been postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions. We will update this website as the situation unfolds.
