Sydney Vital is delighted to announce that its “Translational Theranostics” Flagship Clinical Fellow for 2019, Dr David Chan MBBS FRACP, has been awarded a highly competitive and prestigious NHMRC Investigator grant. This will allow him to continue to focus on his innovative research into understanding the behaviour of Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs), such as why some NETs behave aggressively and others do not..
Sydney Vital Flagship 3 research fellow Dr Yaser Gholami received a Beryl & Jack Jacobs Travel Award from the Kolling Institute in May 2019. The travel award enabled Dr Gholami to travel to the Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) as a visiting scholar and to further enhance the existing collaboration on developing a novel theranostic radio-immuno-nanoplatform for multimodal imaging and targeted radionuclide therapy of cancer.
Sydney Vital invites applications for Travel Awards to the value of $1,500 for domestic travel and $3,000 for international travel.
