2017 Mater Research TRIP Symposium

Visit http://mater.li/MRTrip2017 to register for the annual Mater Research Translating Research into Practice (TRIP) Symposium. Tickets are limited, don't miss out!

Now in its fifth year, the symposium brings together researchers, clinicians and professionals from Queensland’s leading medical research institutes, hospitals, health organisations and universities, to highlight and discuss leading local and national health research as it translates to clinical practice and improving patient outcomes.

This year’s program addresses industry wide challenges around The Path to Preventative Health: Building Evidence for Policy and Practice.

Featuring clinical research case studies and thought-provoking presentations, the 2017 TRIP symposium provides a scientific forum to learn and discuss valuable insights from leading Australian medical researchers on

  • The socioeconomic impact of preventive health
  • Preventive health interventions for at risk populations
  • Strategies for preventing and/or reducing the burden of established diseases and related co-morbidities
  • Community-based and health behaviour change interventions in preventive health

At the conclusion of the symposium, there will be a networking function where attendees will have the opportunity to meet our speakers and network with like-minded professionals from the medical community in a relaxed, social environment.
