Brisbane Cancer Conference

Welcome to the 3rd Brisbane Cancer Conference. With the establishment of the Brisbane Diamantina Health Partners, this meeting is an opportunity to draw together cancer researchers in Brisbane and Queensland to advance collaborative efforts in cancer research. The meeting comprises plenary lectures and workshops on recent scientific, technological, nursing and medical advances in the diagnosis and treatment of malignant disease.

On Thursday 24th November the meeting will start with Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer and Immuno-Oncology symposia running from 8am – 12pm, supported by educational grants from Roche, Janssen and Astrazeneca respectively. There will be an educational symposium supported by MSD at lunch-time followed by plenary lectures from 2pm – 4pm and subsequently workshops running from 4:30pm – 6:30pm.

The symposium gala dinner will be held on Thursday evening offering the opportunity to socialise with colleagues particularly from other institutions in the city and from Queensland.

The all-day meeting on 25th November will include plenary lectures followed by workshops in the morning and afternoon. A key session will be lectures by Brisbane oncology researchers that have contributed to global advances in our understanding of the epidemiology, molecular biology and treatment of malignant disease.

We have over 700 people already registered for the 3rd meeting this year demonstrating the need and value of the annual Brisbane Cancer Conference.

This conference is made possible through the support of the PA Research Foundation, Cancer Council Queensland, Brisbane Diamantina Health Partners, our sponsors and the time and effort of the chairs who put the workshops together. A special thanks also to Therese, Irene, Areti, Anita, Diane and all of the other volunteers who helped with the conference.
