SUMMIT is a postdoc-led conference at the Grafton Campus of the University of Auckland! Our main purpose is to recognise and encourage research collaboration in health and related fields. SUMMIT provides a platform to promote and present excellent science and interdisciplinary research amongst post-docs affiliated with the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, Liggins Institute, and Auckland Bioengineering Institute. It’s an excellent opportunity for networking among the UoA research community!

When: Thursday 6th July
Time: 0900 – 1900
Where: FMHS – Grafton

We are very excited for SUMMIT2023 taking place on Thurs 6th July 2023. Abstract submission and registration will open from Mon 8th May. We warmly invite research fellows and senior research fellows to showcase your work.

We are also pleased to announce our two distinguished keynote speakers.

Matire’s research interests include asthma, heart disease and diabetes, and she is passionate about improving Māori health and reducing health inequities.

Associate Professor Jo James leads a research team in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and is an Honorary Academic in the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. She is passionate about understanding how healthy placental development occurs, and how and why this goes wrong when babies are born pathologically small.
