Congratulations to Professor Mark Dawson who was today announced as a recipient of Cancer Council Victoria's Sir Edward Dunlop Research Fellowship. The Fellowship provides $1.55M over five years to support Prof Dawson's pioneering research into epigenetic regulators, unlocking their potential to support new cancer treatments.
An Australia and New Zealand Melanoma Trials Group (ANZMTG) clinical trial led by Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre investigators that aims to develop a novel treatment combination for a rare neuroendocrine cancer has received $AU1.8m funding from the Medical Research Future Fund.
Peter Mac’s Professor Joe Trapani, has been appointed head of a major new laboratory focused on immunotherapy. Prof Trapani is Director of the new Centre for Cancer Immunotherapy, which is a partnership between Peter Mac, the VCCC and University of Melbourne and is scheduled to open later this year.
The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre acknowledges the traditional
owners of the land on which our five sites are located throughout Victoria.
We recognise their strength and resilience and pay our respects
to their Elders past and present.
