Each year the Women and Infants Research Foundation proudly hosts the Stars Events. These events are WIRF’s opportunity to showcase the most recent research findings in the fields of newborn medicine, women’s health and reproduction.

Held over two consecutive evenings, the Stars Events bring together our finest medical experts and our top emerging medical researchers. They present on various topics relating to women’s and infants’ health to an audience consisting of researchers, and medical and health professionals from hospitals and clinics throughout WA.

“Translating research outcomes into clinical practice”

We live in times of great change. Clinical practice in women’s health and reproduction is also undergoing frequent change resulting from the very active research base that now underpins our field of work. Translating research discoveries into improved patient outcomes, however, is not necessarily simple. The Stars Event this year will focus on several areas in which there have been significant research advances now leading to improved clinical care.
