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

Research Day, held during Alfred Week, focuses on oral research presentations. A prominent figure who has made a lasting contribution to medical research is invited to present a Keynote Address followed by several short presentations by AMREP Research Prize winners. In 2017, The Hon John Brumby AO delivered the Keynote Address.

AMREP Research Prize 

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 2017 were Associate Professor Christoph Hagemeyer (Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, Monash University) and Professor Paul Myles ( Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine, The Alfred).
