On Tuesday, 40 school students from Canberra visited us to learn about cancer and how we’re working to cure it. For the budding scientists among them, it was a chance to find out what a career in medical research is really like.
Our PhD students stopped their experiments and ‘retreated’ from the lab for two days last week. The annual Student Retreat is an opportunity to share experiences, learn new skills and think about the future.
Our scientists have been forging alliances in China that will open the door to research collaborations and speed the progress of childhood cancer research.
PhD student Kim Hanssen has just presented her work at a scientific meeting in Innsbruck, Austria. She gives us her impressions of her first international conference.
A group of students from Shanghai’s Tongji University Talent Program came to meet us and explore future collaborations
