TRI Research Translation Seminar Series 

Major seminars 

As advertised, 12:00-1:00pm in the TRI auditorium: This year sees TRI bring back our institute-wide seminars, with 12 major seminars and an array of guest speakers. These include the Game Changer seminars featuring some big Queensland names as well as the Director’s Choice seminars, which in 2021 are looking at how we can improve clinical trials.

Research Translation Seminar Series 

1:00-1:30pm in Rm 2003: This series is a must for any researcher interested in research translation, as the short and sharp seminars are designed to provide case studies on entrepreneurial and translational research projects and the role of partners (such as clinicians, patients, industry and funding agencies) in the success of these projects. This series will run from 23 March to 30 November. (Please note this seminar will not run on days when a major TRI-wide seminar is being held.)
