The School of Public Health’s 2019 Research Symposium is a showcase of the cutting edge research undertaken by the School’s researchers. This year’s topics reflect the depth and diversity of the School’s research in epidemiology, health economics and policy, environmental health, early childhood development, and big data.

We’re also very pleased to have guest speaker Associate Professor Anne Ekeland, to talk about e-health Professor Terry Nolan, paediatrician and clinical epidemiologist, as our keynote speaker.

Terry is a Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor and (from 2001) Foundation Head of the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences. He is a paediatrician, public health physician and clinical epidemiologist – a medical graduate of University of WA, training in paediatrics at Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne and Montréal Children’s Hospital, and in epidemiology and biostatistics with a PhD from McGill University. His ongoing research is principally in immunisation and clinical trials of new vaccines (over 250 publications). He has been adviser to the Australian Government and to WHO on immunisation policy, and he has contributed substantially to development of the Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) and Engagement/Impact (EI) policies and methods used by the ARC.
