On 15 November 2023 we proudly celebrated the remarkable contributions of its community of supporters and dedicated researchers at our Spring Soiree.  It was an evening of appreciation at AURA Hobart, complete with refreshing drinks, delicious canapés, and breathtaking views!

Throughout the night we celebrated our amazing partners, while also showcasing the achievements of our Foundation-funded researchers. Over the past year, our researchers have been at the forefront of medical advancements - focusing on enhancing treatments for men with prostate cancer, pioneering new tests for dementia, exploring the link between air pollution and specific diseases, and so much more. Their incredible work promises significant improvements in the health and wellbeing of our community.

Guests also heard from Foundation-funded sleep scientist, Sam Bramich, who captivated guests with her insights on REM sleep behaviour disorder and how this condition can be an early indicator of dementia and Parkinson’s disease.

We are so grateful for the generous support of the Spring Soiree event sponsor St Lukes. This inspiring organisation is committed to making Tasmania the healthiest island globally and acknowledges the crucial role of local medical research in achieving this ambitious goal.

It was a pleasure to have so many supporters from various parts of our dynamic community in one room to celebrate the advancements in research in 2023. We look forward to working together to ensure that our research continues to positively impact our local community in 2024 and beyond.
