Centenary Institute cancer research has been recognised by Cancer Council NSW at their 2018 Research Awards announcement last night.

Centenary has been awarded four Project Grants by Cancer Council NSW, supporting the ground-breaking research being undertaken by Professor Peter Hersey, Associate Professor Jeff Holst, Dr Mainthan Palendira, Dr Jessamy Tiffen and Dr Stuart Gallagher in the areas of melanoma and breast cancer research. We congratulate each of the successful recipients and their research teams.
