QIMR Berghofer runs a free annual high school lecture series where students can hear about the latest medical research discoveries, tour state-of-the-art laboratories and investigate careers in science.
Lectures are held in the auditorium at QIMR Berghofer and are attended by up to 600 senior science students from south-east Queensland and their teachers. As part of the program, students:
- listen to leading scientists talk about their research (presentations run for approximately 10-15 minutes each, with 10 minutes for interactive questions)
- tour a QIMR Berghofer laboratory with a science ambassador
- be able to ask questions about careers in science and medical research.
School students are typically on site from 9.00 am to 12.30 pm. Certificates of participation are available for teachers.
