Congratulations to all our students who presented at the 2017 Florey Postgraduate Research Conference.
The University of Adelaide researchers have confirmed that abnormalities in a common brain chemical are linked to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
The Dr Roneal Naidu Memorial Prize will be awarded in recognition of research of demonstrable impact in a surgical discipline. Postgraduate students currently enrolled in the Adelaide Medical School whose work has a focus on surgical research are eligible to apply. The prize will be awarded for the most outstanding peer reviewed scientific paper published (or accepted for publication) within the past two years in this field and in which the applicant was a senior or corresponding author. Special consideration will be given to work that has, or is likely to have, high clinical impact.
The Faculty Research Committee is offering an opportunity for Early Career Researchers to have grant and fellowship proposals (one per researcher) reviewed and refined with the assistance of five eminent researchers: Professor Tom Gonda, Professor Martin Lavin, Associate Professor Alexandra Clavarino, Professor Tiffany Walsh and Professor Gillian Harvey. The review will take the form of a ‘pitch’ presentation for 10-15 minutes to the expert panel, followed by 20 minutes of feedback and discussion. Supervisors/mentors will be invited to attend the pitch sessions. The purpose of the pitch is to give an opportunity to develop a short and convincing summary of the research proposal that will be developed into a grant application. The pitch needs to clearly outline the questions being addressed by the intended research, the composition and contributions of the co-investigators (including basic metrics of each investigator and their capabilities to address the question) and what you personally bring to the proposition. These sessions will take place between the 31 October and 2 November 2017. The session aims to provide constructive feedback and mentoring to refine your grant proposal. Following this session, a mature draft of your application will be fully reviewed by members of this external panel early in the new year, and you will have the opportunity to discuss aspects of the application and feedback with the panel members.
The Executive Dean's Public Lecture series presents 'Putting people first: A person focused approach to mental health,' by Professor Bernhard Baune.
Staff and students are invited to this symposium which will take a practical look at the important, complex and emotive social issue of parental alienation and how family law legislation and services are structured to protect children, mums and dads and significant others.
The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences is proud to present the Annual Florey Public Lecture with esteemed guest speaker Professor David Hunter, who will be presenting Osteoarthritis; translating research into practice.
In 1997, Dr K R and Mrs M S Davey established The Alice Davey Award, in memory of their late daughter, Alice Grace Davey, who died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in 1994. In 2015 a further donation was received from James Chu towards the Alice Davey Award.
Since the beginning of humankind there is evidence of dental disease and its treatment. In 500BC, Aristotle wrote about treating decayed teeth and using wires to stabilise fractured jaws. Through the Middle Ages, dental care was provided by barbers who established their own Guild. It has only been in the last 150 years that the regulation of dental practise has been established, through university dental school institutions and national regulatory bodies.
The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences invites to you to attend the 11th annual Florey Postgraduate Research Conference.
