40th Birthday


Founded in 1977, the National Foundation for Medical Research and Innovation will celebrate its 40th Birthday in November 2017.

To celebrate this milestone and the Foundation’s continuing support for medical research, NFMRI will be holding a celebratory dinner at the Australian National Maritime Museum in the evening of Wednesday, 22nd November 2017.

At this event we will also announce the recipients of new grants.

Table registrations are now open.  Individual tickets will be available through eventbrite at a later stage.

The cost per table is $2,200 including GST

Organisations who wish to purchase a table of 10 for NFMRI’s 40th Anniversary Dinner may do so by completing the form below. An invoice will be generated and sent to the contact details provided below for payment by electronic funds transfer. Please note that tables will only be considered as confirmed once funds have been received.

Also, organisations who choose to allocate one or more seats on their table to support complimentary dinner attendance of a researcher or member of NFMRI will be considered corporate table sponsors and with this they will have the opportunity to have their logo displayed on the table, on the event webpage and on seat allocation charts at the dinner.

NFMRI will contact you a few weeks ahead of the event to confirm the names and dietary requirements of those attending the dinner.
