Event description

Description

Go behind the scenes of the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science!

As part of the Day of Immunology Victoria 2018, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute is opening its doors to the public. Discovery tours provide a unique opportunity for the community to get in contact with biomedical research:

  • See our state-of-the-art research facilities

  • Learn about some of our most exciting discoveries

  • Meet our scientists

  • Hear how our research is shaping future treatments


Launched in 2009, the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science (LIMS) brings together the University's leading scientists to create new levels of collaboration, and a multi-disciplinary approach to drive innovation and produce translatable research outcomes. LIMS has 56 research and support labs, with around 400 La Trobe academics, research fellows, postgraduate students and support staff based at the institute


To learn more about the institute, visit http://www.latrobe.edu.au/lims.


Tours are free and run for approximately 90 minutes. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.

As tour groups will visit a working laboratory, closed toe shoes must be worn for occupational health and safety reasons. The minimum age for discovery tour attendees is 12 years old. This event is wheelchair accessible.
