2018 AAMRI Convention: photos and presentations

9th January, 2019

Thank you to all our members for attending our Annual Convention and helping us celebrate 25 years of supporting medical research institutes. Special thanks to our speakers, CSL for supporting our dinner and Dr Norman Swan for stepping in as a last minute MC.

Held in November 2018, it was another hugely successful two days of insights, discussions, robust conversations on health and medical research, and the CSL Florey Awards announcement.

AAMRI was honoured to have the Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt MP, speak at our President’s Breakfast, and the Shadow Minister for Health and Medicare, the Hon Catherine King MP.
