Symposium
31 Jul 2017 (All day)

2017 translational poster symposium

The theme of the 5th annual Translational Poster Symposium at TRI is "Cause, Prevention and Treatment", showcasing projects which highlight how translational research turns a clinical problem into a solution for the patient. The event expands in 2017 to include more institutes & a wider range of Brisbane’s translational research.

This year we will display more than 80 posters, present 12 oral presentations and engage the audience in a panel discussion featuring some of our most successful translational researchers before finishing with networking drinks. The event aims to show the most recent developments in translational research, gather together key stakeholders from the translational pathway, and to provide the public and future students the opportunity to see career pathways in medical research.

The Program

Submissions for the 2017 Translational Poster Symposium closed in May. TRI invited all translational researchers, clinicians, collaborators and allied health professionals at any stage of their research career to submit an abstract to our full day event. The only condition was that the work must be translational – the research must be driven by a clinical question or patient need, with the potential to be utilized to improve healthcare.

Who can attend

We recommend anyone with a career in, or interest in a career in translational research should attend the Translational Poster Symposium. If you have a research project driven by a clinical problem, we'd love to consider it for poster display or verbal presentation at the symposium. If you are a clinician or allied health professional with an idea for a research project, a biology student looking to start a PhD, or a scientist or researcher looking to network you will benefit from attending the symposium.
