Sydney Vital supported Dr Kelly McKelvey’s attendance to the 10th Cooperative Trials Group for Neuro-Oncology (COGNO), which focused on Tailoring Therapies for Brain Tumours: Challenges and Opportunities. Highlights of the meeting included keynote speakers such as Professor Patrick Wen, Professor Daniel Kelly and Professor Koichi Ichimura, as well as a range of International and Australian specialists for a current and scientific program expanding over 2 full days.
As the Sydney Vital Flasgship 1 Inflammation and Cancer Fellow and Irradiation Manager for the Small Animal Radiation Research Platform (SARRP), Kelly’s role is to develop a preclinical research theme that will advance knowledge of therapy for brain cancer and advise the medical community. The clinical perspective of COGNO 2017 gave Dr McKelvey the opportunity to develop a pre-clinical research theme utilising a mouse model of astrocytic glioma and radiation.
We’d like congratulate Dr Kelly McKelvey and encourage her to keep up the good work. Keep up-to-date with our scholarships, funding and awards and check out our grant schemes.
