NSW Health and Medical Research Forum – Data Driven

NSW Health and Medical Research Forum – Data Driven

The first in a series of free quarterly forums for 2019 that have been designed to inform industry and researchers of NSW Health’s statewide research assets and strengths, as well as provide opportunities to network and collaborate. The focus of this forum will be on data and digital enabled research.

  • Professor David Thomas, Director of the Kinghorn Cancer Centre and Head of the Cancer Division at the Garvan Institute for Medical Research, will present on the Medical Genome Reference Bank and how this NSW statewide asset will promote and encourage scientific discovery through research and clinical usage of the database.
  • Professor Tim Shaw, Professor of eHealth at the University of Sydney and Director of Research and Workforce Capacity at Digital Health CRC, will present on key Digital Health CRC initiatives and opportunities for industry engagement.
  • Associate Professor Craig Gedye, Clinical Director of the NSW Health Statewide Biobank, will present on the benefits of NSW’s investment in new models of biobanking and explain how this will enable biomedical and clinical research, making new ways of research more cost-effective and leading to faster clinical translation of results.
  • Between 5-6pm we will also be offering short tours of the NSW Health Statewide Biobank, situated across the road in the Marie Bashir Centre.
