Research in Progress Meetings

On behalf of Prof Emad El-Omar and the organising committee, it gives us great pleasure to invite you all to attend the St George and Sutherland Clinical School Research in Progress Meetings 2019. Launched in April 2016, these seminars have been an exciting and important addition to our school. These meetings have enabled a platform to present the high calibre of interdisciplinary clinical and basic research currently performed at St George Hospital, within the clinical school and beyond. In 2019, we are also inviting some of our superstar Higher Degree Research (HDR) students to present in this year’s program. We encourage the attendance of all HDR students, their supervisors and research teams to join us in these sessions to support the development of our brilliant early career researchers.

Light refreshments will be provided at every session and everyone is welcome to attend including members of the public, UNSW Sydney and St George Hospital staff and students.
