Dr Caroline Bateman was awarded a SWTCRC ECR Accelerator Award late last year. A great example of collaboration across the Westmead precinct and translation of therapies from adult to paediatric cancer.

Dr Bateman observed that winning the grant is a big step forward saying, “Our collaboration unites research at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Westmead Institute for Medical Research. This enables innovative therapies to be translated for use on children by using knowledge gained from research based on adults.”

Promising results after 17 months of existing research can now be developed further via the grant, from Sydney West Translational Cancer Research Centre (SWTCRC), which will fund resources for another six months and enable completion of the study.
