2017 Sydney Catalyst International Translational Research Symposium



L'Aqua @ Dockside, Darling Harbour

We are delighted to confirm international guest Professor Derek Raghavan, President of the Levine Cancer Institute. We are equally excited to confirm two Australian guests as faculty members: Professor Grant McArthur, Executive Director, Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre and Professor Janet Hiller, Dean of the School of Health Sciences, in the Faculty of Health, Arts and Design, Swinburne University.

The SCITCRS 2017 is a full day symposium offering Sydney Catalyst members and other participants with an interest in translational cancer research the opportunity to learn about our own program as well as a range of successful national and international translational cancer research projects and programs. The meeting, our third biennial Symposium, will also provide valuable opportunities for networking, communication and collaboration across our unique multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional consortium.

The program is being developed by an expert organising committee chaired by our own Senior Translational Research Fellow Dr Nicole Rankin. We are pleased to confirm that we have secured x3 keynote speakers and x11 invited oral presentations from Sydney Catalyst members and collaborators. We will also have Julie McCrossin facilitating an engaging and interactive panel discussion. Members are also invited to submit an abstract for a poster, with both new and recently presented posters encouraged.
