ResearchFest 2023

ResearchFest Oct 2023

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 lectures, symposia and fora giving both early career and experienced researchers the opportunity to share enthusiasm for research. We plan a program that can be accessed online at times that fit around clinical duties.


ResearchFest will be celebrated 2 - 6  October 2023.

Our 2023 Priorities

ResearchFest 2023 is our opportunity to celebrate research in our precinct.

We welcome abstracts from our research partners.

We give preference (for orals or other presentations) to four types of projects.

  1. Projects that demonstrate collaboration between disciplines and professional groups.
  2. The projects of Early Career Researchers.
  3. Projects that will have impact across the health service
  4. Projects that incorporate the voice and vision of consumers
