The Royal Society of Victoria will convene its third field trip for the year with a visit to the remarkable Peter Doherty Institute for Infection & Immunity.
Located in the heart of the Parkville Biomedical Precinct, the Doherty Institute brings together the expertise of leading biomedical scientists, public health specialists and educators focused on infectious diseases and immunity. A partnership of Melbourne Health and the University of Melbourne, the Institute integrates teaching, training, research and public health activities.
The only facility of its kind in the southern hemisphere, the scheme allows space to be reconfigured and encourages the seven different organisations it houses to work closely together.
An exciting opportunity to tour a state of the art facility and meet its eminent namesake, Laureate Professor Peter Doherty AC.
