‘Health and Well-being Ideation’
Event to Tackle Real-World Health Challenges

If you can only attend one medical research conference this year, make sure it’s Science on the Swan 2016, where the theme is “Cutting Edge". With 13 international speakers and many of Australia’s top researchers, this conference brings together experts from multiple disciplines who will talk on their latest discoveries and advances in health and biotechnology.

Science on the Swan is initiated and run as part of the Western Australian Health Translation Network by all five of WA’s universities (The University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Murdoch University, Edith Cowan University and the University of Notre Dame) the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, the Telethon Kids Institute, the key teaching and research hospitals and the WA Government through the Department of Health and the Office of Science.

This is an opportunity to meet the top people in the field; the research scientists developing these technologies in partnership with industry to deliver effective and better health outcomes to the wider community. In addition to plenary lectures, there will be symposia exploring big data, precision medicine, imaging, bioengineering, 3-D printing, new technologies and omics.

Join us to be inspired about the future of health, biotechnology and medical research.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Science on the Swan Conference 2016 in Perth, Western Australia.
