Doug Hilton to provide 2013 Mathison Lecture at The University of Melbourne Mathison Lecture 2013 - Melbourne and medical research in the genome era - why the excitement?

Professor Doug Hilton. Professor of Medical Biology, the University of Melbourne; Director, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research

I wish I was a PhD student embarking on my medical research career in Melbourne!

The genome revolution has opened up the next decade as a golden period for medical research with Melbourne well placed to become a truly great centre.

In this lecture, I will discuss what we can do, as a campus, to make the most of this opportunity - how we can engage with the community and with governments, foster the talent of our amazing staff and students and capitalize on collaboration to maximize research, clinical care and education.

In illustrating these points, I will draw upon my own research on blood cells and some exciting precinct initiatives in the area of genomics and personalized medicine.

Wednesday 19 June, 6.00 - 7.00pm

Sunderland Lecture Theatre, level 2 (ground floor), Medical Building, corner of Grattan St & Royal Parade, the University of Melbourne.
