About StResS

StResS is the student research society at Westmead. Join for lots of fun, food and friends!


We are StRess, the Student Research Society and Westmead! We organize monthly events for all research students based at Institutes across the Westmead Research Hub and Clinical School, so we can socialize and make sure we have more friendly faces to say hello to in the corridors. Our events are a lot of fun and usually involved free food J This year we’ve hosted two BBQs, enjoyed stuffing ourselves on delicious dumplings for Lunar New year, eating BBQ chicken when we broke fast together during Ramadan, hunted for Easter eggs, taken over the Westmead Institute Hall for mass board games and balanced it all out with some healthy snacks and outdoor games, yoga and meditation during Wellness Week. We always love meeting new students so please feel free to contact us at, sign up to our mailing list HERE or follow us on Facebook and Twitter
