How our Clinical Academic Groups are tackling some of the biggest health issues in our community today.
I am delighted to announce that Professor Mark Parsons has been appointed as the Executive Director, Maridulu Budyari Gumal - Sydney Partnership for Health Education, Research and Enterprise (SPHERE). He commenced in the role on 1 July 2021.
The NSW Government through the Cancer Institute NSW has awarded SPHERE's Professor Geoff Delaney a $7M Translational Cancer Research Capacity Building Grant to build capacity and education across the SPHERE Cancer Clinical Academic Group. Commencing on 1 July, the 5 year program will enhance the volume of cancer research the CAG produces, but also to accelerate research translation; ensure succession planning by enhancing career development opportunities; and continue to stimulate high-quality, multidisciplinary, multi-institutional, innovative, impactful research.
Female researchers from across Australia working in women’s health research and translation have been provided financial support in a bid to facilitate the career advancement and development of women in early and mid-career stages of their research careers.
