Research Week

The annual Barwon Health and Deakin Univ​e​rsity Research Week will take place from 12 - 16 November 2018

Research Week showcases our research activities and includes guest lectures by prominent Geelong researchers, various presentations, and education sessions aimed at early career ​​researchers. ​

The presentations this year will enlighten and inform those in attendance, including interactive workshops on biostatistics for health research and research grants, a fascinating opening session by Deakin’s Prof Saeid Navahandi on robotics in medicine and the GCEID One Health Day, with presentations and displays on zoonosis. 

The popular poster presentation and Audience Choice Award will again be hotly contested, with bragging rights and prizemoney up for grabs. The annual Barwon Deakin Res​earch Week ethics debate will tackle the topic that sport is bad for your health, while Trisha Dunning will also present her Annual World Diabetes Day lecture on Dis-ability, Death – Diabetes in 3D. 

Rounding out the week is the prestigious Barry Jones medal which ​will acknowledge the exceptional work of individuals who have contributed to the research community, while the Harrison Lecture for Innovation both honours the legacy of James Harrison and looks at the modern, leading edge innovation in the region that is driving the new Geelong economy.
