Event description

Description

Over 1 million Australians are either living with or have lived with cancer.

Breast cancer will be the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia this year, followed by prostate cancer, according to estimates by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

However, cancer research is undergoing a rapid revolution with genomics, DNA sequencing and big data analysis driving advances in the diagnosis and personalised treatment of cancer.

How can doctors match the right cancer treatment to the right patient? What role can big data and analytics play in turbo-charging research programs? And how close are we to a cure for cancer?

Pathfinders is delighted to be hosting the Cancer in Focus forum on Thursday 20 June where our panel of experts will answer those questions and present the latest research on breast and prostate cancer.

Tickets are $20 with proceeds donated to the Pathfinders Cancer Research Award at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research.

Please register and join us for this fascinating discussion.

The event is hosted by Pathfinders, a group of volunteers who raise funds to support early-stage cancer research projects at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research.
