Presentation Dinner 2014

On 5 April 2014, the Foundation held its Annual Presentation Dinner, marking its 30th Anniversary. The night was one of celebration, complete with fireworks over Cockle Bay. It was a time to acknowledge Mrs Cooper’s legacy, celebrate the achievements of the Foundation, award $1,054,000 in funding, and recognise the wonderful contribution that all the researchers in the room make to medical research. A special thank you goes to our key note speakers, Prof Warwick Anderson AM (CEO NHMRC) and Prof David Copolov OAM (Pro-Vice Chancellor, Monash University), whose presentations encouraged us all to continue to make a difference through medical research and consider how this may be best achieved in the future. The dinner brought together old friends, new friends, the opportunity to network and to share the bright ideas that medical research is founded on. The night brought together everything that the Foundation aspires to achieve.
