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 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 last Wednesday of the month (sometimes flexible with dates) at 12.30 pm in the Queen Victoria Lecture Theatre at the Women's and Children's Hospital.
Each year the Research Seminar Series Organising Committee seeks investigator-driven nominations from WCHN staff to bring leading researchers/speakers in your research field to Adelaide for the MS McLeod Research Seminars.
This represents a great opportunity for you to bring like-minded researchers and/or interesting speakers to Adelaide. Whilst a seminar is required, the speaker’s time is otherwise free enabling their presentation to be combined with a visit to your own Department.
If there is anyone you would wish to come to Adelaide, please contact Katherine McPhail via e-mail at email@example.com with details of your nomination and a sentence or two about why they should be invited to be an MS McLeod speaker.
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.
All nominations will be assessed for suitability by the Organising Committee.
