RAHsearch is back for another year to showcase the ground-breaking research being undertaken across our world-class services.

You are invited to join us hear from some of our most extraordinary researchers as they share ‘what’s new’ in their areas of speciality.

Over three days from Monday 11 October to Wednesday 13 October 2021, we will be sharing our latest research, medical advancements and treatments in some of the most serious and common diseases, including:

· Heart disease

· Diabetes

This year we aim to shine a light on the fundamental link between research and better health outcomes for our community.

RAHsearch will be held at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and streamed live via Facebook. Limited tickets are available to the public and staff to attend the sessions in person.
