2019 RESEARCHER SYMPOSIUM
Cure Cancer Australia's annual Researcher Symposium features presentations from the current year’s Cure Cancer Australia grant recipients and provides a collaboration opportunity for all present. Open to alumni from the previous ten years, it brings together early and mid-career researchers to share their innovative approaches to improving the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.
We also present keynote speakers with the aim of providing important 'big picture' information about the research environment in Australia and/or we offer talks focused on professional development for our alumni.
The goal of this two-day function is to promote networking and collaboration in the sector in order to facilitate rapid research progress and increased competitiveness for the early-career researchers we support. The Cure Cancer Australia Research Consultative Committee, made up of four of our former grant recipients, Andreas Behren (Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, VIC), Susi Woods (SAHMRI, SA), Viive Howell (Kolling Institute of Medical Research, NSW) and Stephen Mattarollo (University of Queensland at TRI) have established this scientific meeting that focuses exclusively on early/mid-career cancer researchers.
