NFMRI’s fourth conference, “Aligning intent: working towards a more sustainable, efficiency and effective medical research ecosystem” will  take place on the 20th and 21st of November 2019 at Peppers The Sands Resort in Torquay, Victoria.

This year’s conference will explore benefits, harm and wastage in the medical research ecosystem and how together we can lead cultural and systems change in order to do better. It will also focus on ways the sector can improve efficiencies and communication with various stakeholders, including the general community. Because success relies on harnessing many skills sets across various sectors including research, industry, investors, government and philanthropy, the conference will focus on the role each of these play in achieving outcomes.
