Welcome to the Nexus for June 2018
In this edition of the Nexus, we are very pleased to congratulate 3 TCRN members who have been recently recognised in the Queens Birthday Honours.
The TCRN Operations and Projects team have been busy over the past few months organising a series of events, namely the Obesity: A new cancer problem, Introduction to Health Economics workshop and the inaugural 2018 TCRN Symposium. We encourage members to register and attend!
Finally, we also profile our recently funded PhD students and TCRN member publications.
