Queenstown Research Week

The 2017 meetings were a huge success despite the issues with the venue. Over 1600 people registered for the various meetings which is a record and we expect bigger things for 2018.

Queenstown Research Week is New Zealand’s biggest annual scientific gathering. It is a week of co-ordinated meetings covering a wide range of science areas. The concept has developed from three different iconic New Zealand scientific meetings: theNZ Medical Sciences Congress (MedSci – incorporating the annual meetings of the NZ Society of Endocrinology and Physiological Society of NZ), Queenstown Molecular Biology Meetings, and the Australasian Winter Conference on Brain Research. These meetings agreed to co-ordinate their meeting programmes in order to create critical mass, and QRW is pleased to host these and a range of other important meetings each year.
Exciting news! Prof Elizabeth Blackburn has agreed to give the opening plenary lecture for Queenstown Research Week 2018.
In addition to the meetings, there is a varied social programme to increase opportunity for networking.
