Beyond 2020: Healthcare of the future
10 December 2019, 10am to 11.30am
We might not have discovered the elixir of life, but what does the future hold for healthcare? Join us in speculating how can we share medical information securely, store terabytes of genetic code with cloud technology, prevent disease and ultimately master the course of our lives.
Lifestyle and Disease

Lifestyle related diseases – diabetes, obesity and metabolic diseases are often associated with genetic and lifestyle factors.

We’re developing better ways to diagnose, treat and prevent cancers both rare and more common cancers like breast, prostate, pancreatic, brain, sarcoma and more.

Diseases of Brain and Ageing
23 September 2020, 10am to 11.30am
Populations are ageing globally. Age related degeneration of our nerves, brain, bones and cells is one of the biggest research priority areas. There desperate need for a greater understanding of these diseases – like Parkinson’s, dementia, osteoporosis and mental health. And, current research programs underway at Garvan show significant potential.
Autoimmunity and chronic disease &
9 December 2020, 10am to 11.30am
Your immune system is your body’s protection against disease. If your immune system is overactive, underactive, or deceived by bad cells like cancer cells, disease occurs. Our researchers examine diseases including type 1 diabetes, arthritis, MS and immunodeficiency. As well as immune function in different diseases like cancer or neurological disorders.
