TCRN's June Nexus
From July 1st the TCRN move forward with the next phase 2016-2021 under the leadership of Director Prof David Goldstein. Read about our upcoming Flagship projects.
The TCRN recently hosted a Health Economics Workshop which was the latest in a series of Implementation Science Community of Practice events. Presenting on the day were Prof Marion Haas and Richard De Abreu Lourenco of the UTS Centre for Health Research Economics and Evaluation (“CHERE”).
This month we feature TCRN Consumer Advisory Committee ("CAC") member Kathryn Leaney, who has been involved in working with members on a number of translational research projects.
Along with our own TCRC grant, TCRN members were also successful in new grants and fellowships awarded by the Cancer Institute NSW including Dr Mark Polizzotto (interview below), Dr Anchit Khanna and Dr Elizabeth Hinde. Congratulations to all!
