The biennial Sydney Catalyst International Translational Cancer Research Symposium was held at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research last month. We had a fantastic turnout with very positive feedback about the range of engaging presentations on offer.


Our invited keynote speakers really impressed, delivering a wealth of knowledge, research and discovery and opening up the conversation across the translational spectrum:



One particular program highlight was our special guest, Anton Enus, who shared his experience about his bowel cancer diagnosis; his post-treatment challenges and new normal. A consumer perspective is always an important reminder of the end goal for our researchers.


Almost thirty people proudly shared their research in our poster viewing sessions where networking and collaboration were top of mind.


Professor Derek Raghavan, all the way from South Carolina, led a lively panel discussion onPersonalised Medicine - Is it living up to the hype?


Congratulations to all the prize winners! We can't wait to hear about your next exciting discoveries:
