We congratulate Dr Christopher Hocking MBBS, FRACP on being offered an Adelaide Prostate Cancer Research Centre (APCRC) Medical Oncology Research Fellowship at the University of Adelaide, which commences in January 2014.
The 12 months Fellowship, set up between the APCRC, an integral part of the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men’s Health, and the Adelaide Cancer Centre, Tennyson Centre, will be funded in its first year of offer by a research development grant from the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
The purpose of the Fellowship is to provide high quality training and skills in basic and translational prostate cancer research for early career medical oncologists attached to the Adelaide Cancer Centre. The Adelaide medical oncology group are actively undertaking clinical trials in prostate cancer. Developing this skill set in oncologists is important for translating discoveries in our laboratory more efficiently into clinical trials, Associate Professor Lisa Butler, Co-Director of the APCRC, explained.
Chris will present on current treatment strategies and challenges for prostate cancer at the first Men’s Health Research Seminar for 2014 on January 30. (See separate blog item).
