Cancer doesn’t sleep, and neither do we

Our latest webinar in the series ‘Cancer doesn’t sleep, and neither do we’ is taking place this Thursday 4th June at 12.30pm.
Paul Mirabelle will be chatting to Associate Professor Michael Michael from Flinders University in South Australia, who has recently been appointed Lead of the Cancer Research Program in the new Flinders Health and Medical Research Institute and has received two Tour de Cure Grants in the past.
Paul and Michael cover off the importance of philanthropic fundraising, how this can leverage further government support, how Flinders is uniquely placed within the cancer research world, and the significance of supporting early career researchers.
