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.
This event was held on Monday 13 August at Westmead, as part of the 2018 Sydney Science Festival.

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.
