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
Thankyou for your ongoing support. We look forward to welcoming you in the future.
Virtual day seminars
How COVID-19 impacts our genes
4 June 2020, 10:00am to 11:00am
We believe genetics is the key to supporting Australia through COVID-19. Hear from Garvan’s top researchers, who assess our genetics to understand why some have severe COVID-19 symptoms, while other remain asymptomatic.
Featuring guest speakers: A/Prof Joseph Powell and Prof Stuart Tangye
Managing COVID-19 and the flu season, when immunocompromised
25 June 2020, 10:00am to 11:00am
Join us our researchers to discuss how to manage the COVID-19 pandemic and flu season while you're immunocompromised.
Featuring guest speakers: Dr Alisa Kane and Dr Sara Wahlroos
Diseases of the Brain and Ageing
23 September 2020, 10:00am 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
10 December 2019, 10:00am 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.
All seminars take place in the auditorium at Garvan Institute of Medical Research, 384 Victoria Street (enter via Burton Street), Darlinghurst, NSW 2010.
