Friends get close-up of medical facilities
A group of Friends of the University recently enjoyed an afternoon going behind the scenes of of medical research at the University of Adelaide.
As part of an ongoing series of events for Friends and Benefactors, the tour provided a rare view of the research laboratories in the Faculty of Health Sciences, with the latest information on brain trauma research with the NRF Chair of Neurosurgical Research Professor Bob Vink one of the highlights.
Attendees also gained insight into the pioneering research into breast and prostate cancers being undertaken at the Dame Roma Mitchell Cancer Research Laboratories, and visited the Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology Laboratory.
