If you have ever wanted to take a peek inside the mind of a researcher, this is your chance!

We are delighted to invite you to Behind the Microscope, a series of one hour conversation events that will put our Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) Researchers on the couch and in the spotlight.

Hear from some of the brightest research talent in South Australia and the exciting possibilities for better treatments, greater wellbeing and potential cures in a fascinating Q&A format.

Our latest conversation on Wednesday, 21 August, 5.30-6.30pm features Associate Professor Tarik Sammour, RAH Colorectal Surgeon and Associate Professor at the University of Adelaide.

Tarik leads the RAH Colorectal Group studying patient centred outcomes in colorectal surgery.

Colorectal cancer is estimated to become the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia by the end of this year and is currently the second most common cause of cancer-related mortality. Despite this, the quality and extent of clinical, outcomes-based research activity in colorectal surgery has historically been lacking. We seek to fully explore the impact of colorectal surgery on patients in an effort to improve rate of recovery and quality of life after surgery.

We warmly invite dedicated supporters of the RAH Research Fund and interested members of the community to see how your donations are making a difference.

When: Wednesday 21 August 2019
Where: Royal Adelaide Hospital
Time: 5.30-6.30pm
