Welcome to the TCRN's August Nexus
This month we profile TCRN Deputy Director Professor Mark Harris who will lead one of the flagships for the TCRN 2016-2021 program; 'Continuum of Care' which will work with GP engagement, referral pathways and survivorship.
The TCRN would like to extend a warm congratulations to Dr Natalie Taylor and her team Dr Deborah Debono and Dr Janet Long on their recent award for "Excellence in Translational Cancer Research" at the 2016 NSW Premier's Awards for Outstanding Cancer Research.
We feature our regular article highlighting the great work of our members through recent publications.
We would like to welcome our newest Consumer to the TCRN Panel; Susan Taylor.
Associate Professor Bettina Meiser chats to us about her presentation at the 'European Meeting on Psychosocial Aspects of Genetics' and work being carried out by the Psychosocial Research Group at the Prince of Wales Clinical School.
TCRN Member Dr Phoebe Phillips is in the news this week for her recent publication in the Biomacromolecules journal, which provides new hope for pancreatic cancer patients through nanomedicine technology.
“This work has the potential to develop new therapies to target this drug-resistant cancer and improve the effectiveness of current chemotherapies, which may increase survival and quality of life for pancreatic cancer patients.”
Finally there are a number of upcoming cancer research conferences, which may be of interest to our members.
Congratulations to Natalie Taylor and team on Winning Excellence in Translational Cancer Research
