HMRI warmly invite you to attend our 2022 Friends for the Future Luncheon.
Our Friends for the Future supporters are an incredibly special group of people who have chosen (or may be considering) to leave HMRI a bequest once they pass on.
This luncheon is simply an opportunity for us to thank you for your support.
Please join us for this free, insightful community seminar by our new Brain Neuromodulation Research Program.
In this seminar, Associate Professor Brett Graham will provide a summary of his recent discoveries related to spinal cord pain signalling, how these discoveries relate to pathological pain, and the opportunity to use this information to improve pain therapies.
Associate Professor Marc Russo will then provide an overview of different pain therapies including the use of neuromodulation therapies. Finally, he will present his findings on an innovative spinal cord stimulation approach that has provided promising results for pain patients.
Let's get our glow on and raise funds for transplant patients and the Hunter Transplant Research Foundation!
The HTRF Glow Walk is a 2 km walk along Nobbys Beach and the Breakwall raising much needed funds for transplant research in the Hunter.
Friends and families will light up the Breakwall by wearing bright fluoro colours or costumes!
We might no longer be in lock down or under tight restrictions but unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic is still here.
So what is the future of COVID?
How long will COVID last for?
When will COVID be classed as an endemic rather than a pandemic?
Are we likely to see more COVID mutations?
From the need to balance career and research with family commitments, as well as the recognised bias in funding, grants and fellowships, there are numerous reasons why women are still underrepresented in science related fields.
