Internationally recognised cancer researcher and Children's Medical Research Institute Director, Professor Roger Reddel, will be joined by a panel of experts who will provide their insights and aspirations into new anti-cancer treatments, and the practicalities of translating research into clinical practice. Improving early detection, understanding and inhibiting the immortalisation of cancer cells, addressing the interaction between cancers and other illnesses, and the application of data science to make best use of existing clinical data, are some of the most promising strategies in contemporary cancer research and treatment.
The Westmead precinct is one of the largest health, education and research precincts in Australia. Sydney Ideas, the University of Sydney’s public events program, is partnering with the precinct to open conversations about teaching, research and innovation to the whole community. Join us for light refreshments from 5.15pm for a 5.30pm start.
WIMR Hall is located on level 2 (street entry level from the institute's front door). WIMR is a secure building. Please ring the doorbell to speak to reception, and sign in for access.
Keen to keep the discussion flowing? Stay around for drinks and light refreshments 7 – 7:30pm.
