Exciting times ahead

With a new State Government settling into Spring St, Biomedical Research Victoria is poised to work with its Members in 2015 to advance Victoria's pre-eminent position in health and medical research. We look forward to updating the new Ministers responsible for the health, innovation, industry and employment portfolios about the benefits to community and the State economy that arise from BioMedVic Member activities.

As the year draws to a close, BioMedVic farewells two staff, Lexey Odgers and Hollie Munro.  I know you will join me in wishing them both all the very best for the next exciting steps in their respective careers.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday and the very best for 2015.
