The University of Melbourne, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences (MDHS) Early Career Researcher (ECR) Network aims to support ECRs to achieve research excellence at the University of Melbourne. The ECR Network is an ECR-led initiative established by, and for, ECRs within MDHS. The ECR Network organises a yearly symposium for researchers to network and present their work.
This year’s theme is ‘collaboration’. The program will include oral and poster presentations and an opening plenary address by Professor Leann Tilley.

A distinguished researcher and recent recipient of the highly prestigious ARC Laureate Fellowship, Prof. Tilley uses high-resolution microscopy to investigate how malaria invades red blood cells.
The title of her plenary presentation will be: “Initiating and maintaining collaborations: seeing is believing” and will discuss how maintaining collaborations with researchers from diverse disciplines have contributed to her research success.
The event will conclude with the opportunity to network with colleagues, enjoy a drink and some food. For more details and updates, see our website.
