Translational Research: An overnight success...10 years in the making

Translating medical research into clinical practice and commercial outcomes is not a pursuit for the faint hearted nor for those who are impatient! The road to outcomes takes a long time and with many hurdles to be overcome.

The QIMR Berghofer TRX16 conference aims to explore the journey by stimulating trans-disciplinary discussions and collaborations across areas of human disease research, drug and diagnostic discovery and development, IT and bioinformatics. 

QIMR Berghofer TRX16 will bring together key life sciences stakeholders from biopharmaceuticals, biotechnology, the R&D community, academia and government working to achieve enhanced research outcomes and value through the translation of data and knowledge into outcomes. 

The conference will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to interact with biopharmaceutical companies, technology companies and software providers; and catalyse possibilities to establish partnerships between these organisations from around the globe.
