SAHMRI’s Heart Health Theme and the Heart Foundation SA have worked together to deliver the 2017 inaugural Cardiovascular Research Showcase today – an event that will highlight the work of South Australian cardiovascular researchers across all disciplines, and identify opportunities for collaboration between researchers.
For junior researchers, the event provides an opportunity to present and learn from their peers who are already established in the field.
The Cardiovascular Research Showcase will be an interesting blend of plenary sessions and poster presentations covering basic science, clinical, health service and public health cardiovascular research.
SAHMRI’s Heart Health Theme Leader, Professor Steve Nicholls, said that this event is a great step forward for collaboration between SAHMRI and the Heart Foundation SA.
“Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do at SAHMRI. The Showcase is the perfect forum to exchange ideas and learn about what other researchers are currently working on,” Professor Nicholls said.
“This will open up opportunities to work together, so we can become more competitive and strengthen our research into such a significant health issue that affects so many Australians.”
