Description

Welcome to Flinders Health Research Week 2018. Southern Adelaide is rich in world class health and medical research. We are pleased to be able to shine a light on the passion, talent and achievements of the health professionals, scientists, clinical researchers and students based in the South.

Research over the last century has revolutionised the way we deliver health care. It is in that light we have come together to present an innovative program showcasing a broad cross section of our current research.

The week sees three key partners unite. Southern Adelaide Local Health Network, Flinders University of South Australia and the Flinders Foundation to jointly support Flinders Health Research Week reflecting how we are united by research.

Full program details can be found online.
