Cancer Research Network Launched
The University of Sydney Cancer Research Network has been established to network researchers in the University of Sydney and its affiliated institutes and institutions, and thereby help build high quality cancer research capacity and achieve international cancer research excellence in areas of strength.
The Network fosters communication with and among members to facilitate research collaboration, with an emphasis on research translation. Translational medicine, often known as bench to bedside, focuses on moving research discoveries from the laboratory into clinical practice to diagnose and treat patients.
One of the main aims of the network will be to increase awareness of, and capacity for, multidisciplinary collaboration across groups - in the process, this will build a sense of community among cancer researchers across discipline and geographical boundaries.
The Network is an ideal showcase for cancer research at The University of Sydney, and through its activities will stimulate knowledge transfer within the Network, the University and to the Government and public.
