bullet Welcome to the Nexus for December 2017

From all of us at the TCRN, we would like to wish you a safe and happy holiday. We have plenty of achievements to celebrate as a result of all of your valuable contributions throughout the year and we look forward to continued success in 2018.

2017 has been a very successful year in terms of funding, awards, publications and other outputs for many of our members. We have been involved in a number of successful events either led or sponsored by the TCRN spread across the 2017 calendar. These included Sydney’s first 'Oncofertility Symposium', the 'Bridging the Gap' and 'Randwick Precinct Cancer Roundtable' sessions as well as the 'Life after a PhD' career pathway workshop with new and exciting events to feature throughout 2018.

We awarded the first TCRN Flagship Support Grant to Professor John Pimanda for his project flowcytometry based assay to predict Azacitidine (AZA) responsiveness in Myelodysplasia/Acute Myeloid Leukemia (MDS/AML). The TCRN has also awarded 3 PhD Top-Ups awards, 1 Clinical PhD Top-Up and 16 Travel and Professional Development Grants. We will offer similar support in 2018.

The TCRN will be closing in line with the end of year shutdown from 20 December 2017 to 1 January 2018 inclusive. TCRN staff will be back in the office from 2 January 2018.
