Ms Zizhen Ming Awarded Sydney Vital Travel Award

Sydney Vital would like to congratulate Ms Zizhen Ming for being selected as one of the travel award winners in this round, she used the award to support her attendance to the American Association for cancer research 2018.

The American Association for cancer research 2018 (AACR 20188), held at the McCormick Place North/South in Chicago, USA was the 109th annual gathering of AACR, this year focusing on the theme of ‘Driving Innovative Cancer Science to Patient Care.’ As the premier scientific conference in the field of cancer the conference saw over 22,000 cancer researchers, physician-scientists, industry scientists and patient advocates come together to hear the latest talk in cancer research.

Ms Zizhen Ming attended the conference thanks to the travel scholarship awarded by Sydney Vital. Currently a Phd student at Mazquarie University, Zizhen’s primary research interest is in melanoma a cancer that causes 75% of skin cancer death.

At the AACR 2018 Ms Ming presented a poster titled “Multiple signalling pathways are active in BRAF/NRAS wild type melanomas,’ in the session ‘Biomaker Identification and Novel Methods.’ This was the first time Ms Ming had the opportunity to fully present her work at such a prestigious international conference and with content on finding new therapeutic targets for this subgroup of patients in order to provide effective treatment strategies, it generated lots of interest and was an excellent platform to network with other professionals in a similar field.

The program of the AACR 2018 included a variety of topics in cancer research; like drug resistance, immune checkpoints, patient derived xenografts, CRISPO Cas9, genomic profiling, undergoing clinical trials and so on. By attending the conference Ms Ming comments “it’s invaluable and inspired by networking with other researchers overseas, sharing ideas and understanding our limitations to help make further improvements in our study.”
