Discovery Research Endowment Fund Launch Dinner

Thu 17 Jun 2021 6:00pm

 

In early 2020, the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI), at the University of Queensland, launched its QBI Discovery Research Endowment Fund, which will help to bridge the gap between high performing scientists with pioneering ideas and the next big scientific discovery.

Join master of ceremonies, Garry Waugh, and keynote speaker, Dr Norman Swan, ABC Radio National and CoronaCast producer and co-host, who will provide an insight into why we need to solve today's big problems through innovative thinking and research.  

Research at QBI is the critical lifeline to gaining a deeper understanding of the fundamental mechanisms which control the brain and possible solutions to many of the health problems facing the world today.
