2017: another year of inspiring innovation

Even though 2017 may only be a couple of weeks old, veski has already begun inspiring innovation with a full program of fellowships, events and activities planned for the coming months.
On behalf of the veski board and the veski chair Professor Ian Smith, I thank you for your continued support of veski programs, and look forward to delivering inspiring activities throughout 2017.
In the meantime, if you know an early-career health and medical researcher who deserves recognition, please encourage them to apply for the 2017 Premier’s Award for Health & Medical Research. Applications close on Wednesday, 25 January 2017.

May I take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy New Year!
