Public seminars

The Garvan Institute is committed to safeguarding the health of all visitors. In the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are postponing our face-to-face public seminars. 
Until restrictions ease, we are hosting virtual seminars only — see below for details

Virtual day seminars


Diseases that affect us most – Part 1

9 July 2020, 10:00am to 11:00 am

We investigate many diseases, from the rarest or un-diagnosable and un-treatable to the most common and widespread. Our world-leading researchers connect the dots by pioneering discoveries across four intersecting research themes – medical genomics, epigenetics, and cellular genomics; cancer; diseases of immunity and inflammation; and diseases of ageing affecting bone, brain and metabolism.

Finding the Solution to diseases at Garvan – Part 2

23 July 2020, 10:00am to 11:00am

The Garvan Institute brings patients and the best medical researchers together – locally, nationally and globally. Garvan houses some of the most sophisticated research centres globally, established to connect different research disciplines, organisations, and clinical and community partnerships.


All seminars take place in the auditorium at Garvan Institute of Medical Research, 384 Victoria Street (enter via Burton Street), Darlinghurst, NSW 2010.
