Prof J Proietto at Research Week


ResearchFest 2017

ResearchFestOct 2017

ResearchFest celebrates the research undertaken at Austin LifeSciences and highlights the breadth and excellence of our research. It is an opportunity to learn what others are doing, to facilitate new research collaborations, and to encourage new students and junior researchers to undertake a research career at Austin LifeSciences.

The ResearchFest program is full of interesting lunchtime lectures, symposia and fora giving both early career and experienced researchers the opportunity to share enthusiasm for research.


ResearchFest was formerly Research Week. Due to increasing popularity, the event no longer fits into a single week.


Our program is now in two parts.  The poster displays and author sessions are in the week of 16 - 20 October, with lectures and symposia 19 - 25 October.
