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
Thank you for your ongoing support. We look forward to welcoming you in the future.

Garvan's 2021 breast cancer virtual seminar
Friday, 1 October 2021, 11:00am to 12:00pm (AEST)
Hear our research advances in new treatments, drug resistance and metastasis, and new clinical trials. Hosted by Prof Elgene Lim, A/Prof Alex Swarbrick and Dr Elizabeth Caldon, this year’s seminar will include Prof Geoffrey Lindeman, one of Australia’s eminent breast cancer researchers. The seminar will also include an update on Garvan’s breast cancer research and clinical trials at St Vincent’s hospital.
BITE SIZE SCIENCE: Accelerating genomic diagnosis of disease
Thursday 28 October 2021, 12:00pm-12:30pm (AEDT)
Genomic tests are increasingly used to diagnose genetic disease and give families answers about their health. These tests look at all of a person’s DNA, and all of their genes, at once. However, many diseases still can’t be diagnosed because they are caused by long, repeated sequences in the genetic code that are too hard to read with the available technology. Garvan researchers are developing new methods to read through these long stretches of DNA to accelerate the diagnosis of previously undiagnosed disease.
Join us for our upcoming seminar with Dr Ira Deveson and Dr Kishore Kumar to learn about these exciting new approaches to accelerate diagnosis and profoundly impact people’s lives.
