Research Expo Excellence

A big thank you goes to all the representatives from Victorian biomedical research organisations who helped make the 2017 Victorian Honours & PhD Expo such a huge success!

Over 150 keen students walked through the Expo doors to speak to representatives from 20 exhibiting organisations about research opportunities – and the room’s noise levels matched the students’ enthusiasm.

We were proud to host such an outstanding cross section of Greater Melbourne’s research excellence at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on 21 July. Feedback from both students and exhibitors has been overwhelmingly positive and we are confident many fruitful connections were formed during this event.

“This is what it’s all about,” said one exhibitor. “Let us know when you’re running the next one!”

Many of the participants of the UROP Conference Day, including our newest cohort of UROP scholars which have been placed in Melbourne research projects, attended the Expo.

As part of our commitment to help Victoria launch the careers of its best and brightest science students, we are proud to continue to bring BioMedVic Members and the wider research community in Victoria unique networking opportunities.
