Great turnout for 2nd Peter Mac Public Lecture - Research at Peter Mac
|Peter Mac Executive Director, Cancer Research, Professor Joseph Trapani welcomes guests to the 2nd Annual Sir Peter MacCallum Public Lecture at the Melbourne Town Hall.|
|On Thursday 21st October members of the public and the Peter Mac community gathered for the 2nd Annual Sir Peter MacCallum Public Lecture: Cracking the Cancer Code. |
On a warm spring evening, 3AW’s Dr Sally Cockburn welcomed the enthusiastic audience — up over 50% on the attendance of last year’s inaugural event. In the elegant Swanston Hall within the Melbourne Town Hall, Professor David Bowtell and Dr Gillian Mitchell gave an informative, entertaining and passionate presentation, updating the community on the recent history and exciting future of cancer genetics and individualised patient care.
The two half-hour talks took the audience from the laboratory into the clinic, a structure that echoed the onsite collaboration between basic and clinical research that defines Peter Mac as unique among Australian public hospitals.
