Event description

Description

How will cellular therapy, immunotherapy, personalised medicine, and the use of big data impact cancer treatments?

Internationally recognised cancer researcher and Children's Medical Research Institute Director, Professor Roger Reddel, will be joined by a panel of experts who will provide their insights and aspirations into new anti-cancer treatments, and the practicalities of translating research into clinical practice. Improving early detection, understanding and inhibiting the immortalisation of cancer cells, addressing the interaction between cancers and other illnesses, and the application of data science to make best use of existing clinical data, are some of the most promising strategies in contemporary cancer research and treatment.

Panel of experts:
