Project: Theo Murphy Frontiers of Science Healthy Ageing Symposium

Grant/Funder: Theo Murphy (Australia) Initiative.

Project: Funding support to run the Theo Murphy Frontiers of Science Healthy Ageing Symposium at SAHMRI in 2019.

Chief Investigator: Stephanie Harrison.

Project period: 03/2018-06/2019.

More information: The 2019 Frontiers of Science ”Redefining Healthy Ageing Together” symposium provided an opportunity for early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) based in Australia to showcase their research to peers, and form new collaborations.

This two-day event at SAHMRI (8-9 April 2019) allowed researchers from a variety of disciplines and sectors, with a focus on healthy ageing, to come together and present their current research and share ideas. The event also facilitated the engagement of researchers with members of the public, not as research participants but as collaborators who can add a valuable insight in to the design and development of research projects.
