The Royal Women’s Hospital
Student Symposium 2020

November 16-17   - online event -

The Student Symposium (previously known as Research Week) showcased the diverse range of clinical and translational research undertaken at the Women’s by our own research students.

This year we did things a little differently, due to COVID-19. A virtual Research Poster Gallery was on display in the lead up to the Symposium. The top 20 research posters were selected and presented in online events during November.
