The MMS Research Symposium
Melbourne Medical School Research Symposium

Our annual Melbourne Medical School (MMS) Research Symposium provides an opportunity to celebrate the innovative and impactful research taking place across the School, with speakers ranging from graduate research students to senior research leaders.

This year's theme, Translating Innovation into Impact, will include updates on major MMS and MDHS projects, by the Head of School Professor John Prins and Faculty Dean Professor Shitij Kapur, respectively, while also featuring presentations from the School's Student and ECR Publication Prize finalists.

Applications are now open for the annual Publication Prizes and for full details, including eligibility and selection criteria, please visit the MMS Intranet at (University staff login details required).

Our Symposium will also showcase inspiring journeys in research through the 'Moth' storytelling format, facilitated by Professor Jane Gunn, Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences (MDHS).

Professor Susan Walker and Strategic Grants for Outstanding Women winner Associate Professor Natalie Hannan will deliver 'Moth' presentations along with NHMRC Investigator Grant awardee Dr Vanessa Cropley.

The event is open to all academic, honorary and professional staff, as well as graduate research students, who are affiliated with the School.
