FHRI Fund October 2023 Open Day

The next WA State Government’s Future Health Research and Innovation (FHRI) Fund Open Day will be held on Tuesday 31 October 2023 at Edith Cowan University (ECU), Joondalup Campus, JO B32 Lecture Theatre.

It is an opportunity for the research and innovation community to hear about exciting WA health and medical research and innovation developments as well as information about FHRI Fund programs available in the November cycle and recent FHRI Fund recipients.

The event will be coordinated by the WA Department of Health’s Office of Medical Research and Innovation (OMRI) in partnership with ECU.

The theme for the event is ‘Precision Health’ which aligns to FHRI Fund strategic objectives and is a strategic focus area of the WA Health and Medical Research Strategy 2023-2033. Precision health offers the promise of moving from a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to more effective, personalised solutions to improve the health and well-being of individuals.

The event will feature presentations from the Hon. Stephen Dawson MLC, Minister for Medical Research; FHRI Fund Advisory Council Members; Professor Simon Laws, Associate Dean (Medical and Exercise Sciences), Professor of Translational Genomics in the School of Medical and Health Sciences and Director of the Centre for Precision Health at ECU and other prominent speakers from ECU and the WA ‘precision health’ research and innovation community.
