Alfred Week Research Poster Display
The annual Alfred Week Research Poster Display showcases the latest in research from across AMREP. Typically, 150-170 research posters are displayed for a week in late October on the ground floor of The Alfred hospital.
Prizes are awarded for the posters judged best in categories such as infectious diseases, cardiovascular disease, mental health, nursing and allied health.
Research Day, held during Alfred Week, focuses on oral research presentations. An external speaker is invited to present a Keynote Address followed by several short presentations by AMREP Research Prize winners. In 2016, Professor Joseph Trapani, Executive Director Cancer Research, Head of Cancer Immunology Program, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre , delivered the Keynote Address.

The AMREP Research Prizes (clinical and basic) are awarded annually on Research Day for the best original research articles published in the previous calendar year.
The winners in 2016 were Dr Michelle Boyle (Burnet Institute) and Professor Jamie Cooper (Intensive Care Unit, The Alfred).
