ASMR Medical Research Week

ASMR Medical Research Week is a flagship activity for The Australian Society for Medical Research, and a major highlight of the Australian health and medical research calendar, bringing the message of the benefits of health and medical research to the Australian public.

This annual event features public outreach events (including cinema events, meet a scientist dinners and community lectures), career events for high school and tertiary students, schools visits, an on-line schools quiz, scientific meetings and professional development programs for medical researchers held across the country.

A highlight of the week will be a national tour by 2019 ASMR Medalist, science journalist Elizabeth Finkel.

Co-founder of the science magazine Cosmos, Dr Finkel’s recent portfolio includes a feature article on the problem of stunting in Papua New Guinea, and the work of researchers attached to Burnet’s Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies project, to discover how and why it’s happening.
