As part of the Victorian Government’s Victoria Cancer Action Plan 2016-2020, five of the state’s most brilliant scientific minds will receive $1.5 million in grants to support their ground-breaking discoveries and medical breakthroughs in cancer research.
The grants, provided by the Victorian Cancer Agency Cancer, will arm the state’s best medical research experts with the tools and resources they need to develop new ways to treat cancer, ultimately working their way towards finding a cure.
This year’s recipients are all women and will be supported to study the prevention of cancer-associated blood clots, reduce medication errors, develop guidelines for treating cancer-related fatigue and reduce complications from childhood cancer treatment.
