The 2018 TQEH Research Expo (incorporating TQEH Research Day) was held on Thursday 18 and Friday 19 October. Each October the Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research holds a Research Expo which provides researchers in training the opportunity to gain valuable experience in delivering an oral or poster presentation before a broad audience. The work presented at Research Expo must have been substantially undertaken at the Basil Hetzel Institute, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and not have been previously presented at a TQEH Research Expo.
