The Brett Tindall Memorial Lecture is an annual lecture awarded by the Kirby Institute to a world leader in infectious disease research.

It is awarded in memory of Dr Brett Tindall, who was one of the Kirby Institute’s first researchers in the 1980s. Brett's research focused on the process of seroconversion and the body's responses to the entry of HIV. He died of AIDS in 1994.

This year, Dr Kerry Chant, NSW Chief Health Officer and Deputy Secretary of the Population and Public Health Division at the NSW Ministry of Health will deliver her lecture "Applying evidence to the hepatitis C and HIV response". This is an opportunity to explore the intersection between medical research and health policy with one of Australia's policy leaders.

The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion and conclude with a cocktail reception.
