MS McLeod Research Seminar Series
The MS McLeod Research Fund (overseen by the Women's and Children's Hospital Foundation) supports a monthly research seminar series at the Women's and Children's Health Network (WCHN).
The MS McLeod Research Fund was established by a bequest from the estate of Murdoch Stanley McLeod. The purpose of this fund is to support in perpetuity paediatric research. This fund also offers various scholarships, fellowships and grants annually.
One of the popular initiatives of the Fund is to sponsor the MS McLeod Research Seminar Series, which is held monthly (February – November), usually on the fourth Wednesday of the month (as listed below but with some flexibility for dates) at 12.30 pm in the Queen Victoria Lecture Theatre at the Women's and Children's Hospital.
The seminars will be preceded by light refreshments at 12 noon.
Each year the Research Seminar Series Organising Committee seeks nominations from WCHN staff to bring leading researchers/speakers in your research field to Adelaide for the MS McLeod Research Seminars at the Hospital. This represents a great opportunity for staff to interact with like-minded researchers and/or interesting speakers in Adelaide. Whilst a seminar is required, the speaker’s time is otherwise free enabling their presentation to be combined with a visit to your Department.
Each national or international speaker can be funded for a return airfare to Adelaide (from within Australia and from the nearest Australian capital city), one nights’ accommodation at a hotel/apartment near the WCH, and an honorarium. Lunch is also provided on the day of the Seminar.
Please note that priority will be given to leading and experienced researchers / speakers who will address topics of relevance to women's and children's health, in particular in the area of paediatric research.
If there is anyone you want to nominate as a MS McLeod speaker, please contact Katherine McPhail via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance with details of your nomination and a sentence or two about why the person should be invited as an MS McLeod speaker including the relevance of their presentation to paediatric research.
All nominations will be assessed for suitability by the Organising Committee upon receiving the attached completed Speaker Application Form.
