Prof Andrew Scott: Integrating Technology into Cancer Care
Chris O’Brien Lifehouse Research Symposium
Location:Education Centre Level 5 Chris O’Brien Lifehouse 119-143 Missenden Rd Camperdown
Advances in technology in regard to cancer care have led to mounting expectations in regard to the impact on health care and disease prevention. Such expectations demand more of the research and scientific community in order to deliver a comprehensive research agenda that moves advanced discoveries into health practice ensuring viable health benefits with minimal risk to individuals. This free research symposium will discuss the opportunities and potential pitfalls of integrating technology into cancer care.
Special guest speaker: Professor Andrew Scott AM, Deakin University
This is a free event. Places are limited. Registration essential https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/technology-integration-into-cancer-care-tickets-35615862002

About Professor Scott:
Throughout my research career as a translational clinician-scientist I have had an abiding interest in the mechanisms of tumour cell growth, and the development of innovative strategies to improve diagnosis and therapy for cancer patients.
The areas of my major research focus have been in the definition and characterisation of antigen and receptor targets for cancer therapy; signaling and metabolic pathways in cancer cells; antibody-based therapy and immune regulation of tumours, and molecular imaging of cancer.
I have published over 260 peer reviewed papers and 20 book chapters, principally in the areas of oncology and molecular imaging. Invited reviews in leading journals include Nature Reviews Cancer and Cancer Research.
I am actively involved in the training and mentoring of young scientists and clinicians and currently supervise several doctoral students in addition to post-doctoral fellows and Nuclear Medicine trainees.
