Call for undergraduate student research papers

This two-day conference (19-20 September 2013) will include poster presentations and spoken papers by undergraduate students from all disciplines and from across Australasia.

ACUR is just like any other academic conference but each presentation will be delivered by undergraduate students presenting work they have done either as part of their course or as part of an internship. You will have the opportunity to talk to undergraduate researchers from your discipline, and you will also learn a lot about how other disciplines approach research problems.

Look at the papers, posters and spoken presentations from ACUR 2012, watch the You Tube invitation then apply to present. You simply need to get an abstract of no more than 300 words together by 9 am on Monday 1st of July 2013. It is a fantastic opportunity. Go to: www.undergraduateresearchaustralia.com for more details.

This lecture will describe the benefits and feasibility of weight lifting exercise for fit and frail individuals, no matter what their chronological age. Mr Ray Moon has had polio, open-heart surgery, suffered a cardiac arrest and was once pronounced clinically dead. Despite his health challenges, 84 year old Ray now has the body of a man half his age – and muscles most men wish they had. He has taken out four Victorian and Australian bodybuilding championships in the over-70’s division.

Ageing Well:  Size Does Matter
Wednesday, 19 June, 6 – 7.30 pm

Professor Maria Fiatarone Singh, MD, Professor of Medicine, John Sutton Chair of Exercise and Sport Science

 REVUE    |  
We are Revue-ing the entire institution. Yes, all of it.
Attention ladies and gentlemen – The Faculty of Health Sciences has an important announcement to make…we are Revue-ing the entire institution.

You may have heard that the first Health Sciences Revue is in production. We are combining relevant health science themes with relevant pop culture references, satire and skits to churn it all into musical numbers and comedic lines. There will be terrible, terrible puns, and occasionally, even a terribly good one. Don't worry, if centre-stage is not for you there are plenty of other positions for healthy minds, including many administration and behind-the-scenes roles.
