About the conference
The 2023 Florey Postgraduate Research Conference is a highlight for the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and a chance to showcase outstanding research activity.
The conference, now in its 17th year, gives HDR students the opportunity to discuss their research with fellow students, academics, industry partners, and other major stakeholders of the University. It is a chance to recognise excellence in research and hear from distinguished speakers on specialised topics, beneficial to ongoing professional and personal development.
This year we are excited to announce that in addition to showcasing the high calibre research being undertaken by our HDR students, the conference will feature an additional information and promotional component aimed at prospective students and will also include some beneficial guests and services for the current students. There will be a broad of stakeholders present to meet and chat to. Visit the HDR promotion event page for more information.
Florey Medical Foundation
Named after Lord Howard Florey, a University of Adelaide graduate who shared a Nobel Prize for his development of penicillin, the Florey Medical Research Foundation raises funds for postgraduate research scholarships and early-career postdoctoral research fellowships within the medical degree.
Lord Florey and his team of scientists changed the course of history when they developed penicillin into a life-saving antibiotic treatment. Today, through the foundation that bears his name, Florey's achievements continue to inspire Adelaide students and researchers alike.
The foundation is based within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
