Get An Insight Into Our Greatest Minds “Brave New World – Brave New Research” in the face COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted St Vincent's Campus Research, with many researchers having to adapt, stop or change their “normal” way of research and trials in labs and the hospital. The result from these challenges? Stronger, braver, resilient and more creative researchers!

The 28th Annual St Vincent's Research Symposium

The St Vincent's Research Symposium has been held annually for over 25 years and brings together the brightest minds across the Campus to share their research with peers. It involves a great coming together of prominent healthcare researchers from across the St Vincent's Research Campus and our academic partners.

This is an outstanding opportunity for campus staff and visitors to celebrate some of the country's finest medical research and healthcare innovation. This year the program will focus on the 2 broad research fields of COVID-19 and Neurology Research as well as the usual poster and fast forward presentations.
