Mater Research TRIP Symposium 2017


Mater Research’s annual Translating Research Into Practice (TRIP) Symposium brings together researchers, clinicians and professionals from Queensland’s leading medical research institutes, hospitals, health organisations and universities, to highlight and discuss leading local and national health research as it translates to clinical practice and improving patient outcomes.

The 2017 TRIP Symposium will provide a scientific forum to learn and discuss the most recent areas of intervention in Preventive Medicine and outline the best strategies for translating this scientific evidence into policy and practice.

This year’s symposium features keynote presentations from:  

  • Prof. Gita Mishra - Professor of Life Course Epidemiology at the School of Public Heath and NHMRC principal research fellow, The University of Queensland.  
  • Dr. Lisa Mackenzie - National Breast Cancer Foundation Post-doctoral Research Fellow with the Health Behaviour Research Collaborative, the University of Newcastle and Hunter Medical Research Institute.

  • Prof. David Whiteman - Deputy Director and Senior Scientist Head of the Cancer Control Laboratory at the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Research Centre based at the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute.

This year's theme is The Path to Preventative Health: Building Evidence for Policy and Practice.

Session topics include:

  • Preventive health interventions for at risk populations
  • Strategies for preventing and/or reducing the burden of established diseases and related co-morbidities
  • Community-based and health behaviour change interventions in Preventive Medicine
  • Socioeconomic Impact of Preventive Medicine

At the conclusion of the symposium, there will be a networking function where attendees will have the opportunity to meet our speakers and network with like-minded professionals in a relaxed, social environment.
