Brightest blood cancer minds come to Queensland
Some of Australia’s leading blood cancer researchers came to Brisbane earlier this year to share fascinating insights and knowledge that will help the state’s researchers beat blood cancer.
Thanks to our supporters, we were able to help bring Professor Fabienne Mackay from the University of Melbourne and Associate Professor John Pimanda from the University of New South Wales to the sunshine state.
They spoke to other blood cancer researchers at the Translational Research Institute in Brisbane about their breakthrough research to inspire others in the field. Dr Pimanda’s work focuses on predicting therapeutic outcomes among those with Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute leukaemia, while Professor Mackay’s research centres on chronic leukaemia, directly influencing clinical practice internationally.
Dr Pimanda and Professor Mackay were in Queensland for Brisbane Diamantina Health Partners Blood Cancer Group Seminar Series, which is supported by the Leukaemia Foundation.
