About the Animal Science Poster Olympics

The Animal Science Poster Olympics were established in 2012 by Professor Ala Tabor, and is hosted by QAAFI's Centre for Animal Science.

In previous years the competition has attracted more than 50 participants, both research higher degree students and early career researchers in animal science from different UQ Schools and Institutes, CSIRO and the Qld Department of Agriculture & Fisheries.

The competitors present their research across many broad areas of animal science including koala healing, aquaculture,  rumen microbiology and bovine genetics. 


Registrations have now closed to attend this event or compete in the poster Olympics for 2021.
