The TCRN team are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Mark Harris to the role of Chair of the Leadership Council and the TCRN Director. Mark already held the position of Deputy Director and a TCRN Leadership Council member. He replaces Professor Robyn Ward. Professor Harris is foundation Professor of General Practice and Executive Director of the Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity at UNSW. He has substantial experience in health services research and trials on chronic illness prevention and management in primary health care.
We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding job that Professor Robyn Ward has done as foundation Director of the TCRN since the Centre's launch in 2011. As Director of the TCRN, Robyn has worked with a network of universities and hospitals to pursue the translational cancer research objectives of the Cancer Institute of NSW.
Professor Mark Harris will be continuing this role at TCRN until the end of the current TCRC program in June 2016.
