We have the pleasure of inviting you to the Melbourne Academic Centre for Health (MACH) Care of the Ageing Network early and mid-career researcher (ECR/MCR) information session on 11 August (via Zoom).

Session details
Date: Tuesday 11 August
Time: 8.30–9.30am
Venue: ZOOM – link to be sent following registration
RSVP: By Wednesday 5 August via RSVP and short questionnaire (including those unable to attend to join the mailing list)
Please note that the session will be recorded for those unable to join.

The session will be led by Prof Andrea Maier, Chair of the MACH Care of the Ageing subcommittee who will be joined by Prof Sir John Savill, MACH Executive Director.

The MACH Care of the Ageing subcommittee is comprised of a multidisciplinary group with expertise across the translation of the health research spectrum; from basic discovery to implementation into clinical practice in health services and community.
The objective of this session is to:

  • Provide an overview of the MACH

  • Introduce the Care of the Ageing theme and focus (see White Paper for background)

  • Generate interest in potential opportunities for ECR/MCRs in ageing and aged care fields (i.e. career development and networking)

  • Provide an opportunity for questions and discussion 

We hope to enable valuable connections across the MACH with the aim of developing an ECR/MCR network of ageing and aged care focused researchers supported by the Care of the Ageing subcommittee.


See: machaustralia.org/ageing for details.
As such we ask those interested (including those unable to attend) to complete the short (5 min) questionnaire with details of their background and research interests to share prior to the meeting.
