Alfred Health Week Research Poster Display
The annual Alfred Health Week Research Poster Display showcases the latest in research from across Alfred Research Alliance. This year, 176 posters were displayed for a week in June, on the ground floor of The Alfred hospital.
Prizes are awarded for the posters judged best in categories such as infectious diseases, cardiovascular disease, mental health, nursing and allied health.
Research Day, held during Alfred Week, focuses on oral research presentations. A prominent figure who has made a lasting contribution to medical research is invited to present a Keynote Address followed by several short presentations by Alfred Research Alliance Research Prize winners. In 2018, Dr Susan Alberti delivered the Keynote Address. You can read more about it here.
