It has been wonderful seeing the return of in-person events this year and we enjoyed hearing about our members’ research achievements and networking with many of you at The Sydney Cancer Partners Anniversary Forum in June and at the inaugural NSW Cancer Conference held in September. Our overarching goal is to build capacity in Cancer Research and in 2022 Sydney Cancer Partners received applications for PhD Scholarships, Translational Partnership Fellowships, Pilot and Seed grants, Conference and Travel grants, a Regional Equipment Grant and a CAG Implementation Project. We will be profiling recipients of these awards and their research in newsletters over the coming months.

Looking to 2023, Sydney Cancer Partners will continue building research capacity by awarding more funding support through our Conference and Travel funding scheme and a joint Strategic Enhancement Grant in partnership with SPHERE. We will initiate a fellows and scholar mentoring program, continue to build collaborations and support impactful research with additional pilot and seed grant opportunities and SIG activities, host the State-wide seminar series, contribute to the NSW Cancer Conference 2023 and launch an enhanced on-line member database. We will also continue our efforts to support engagement between researchers and consumers.

Thank you to all of our members and affiliates, we wish you and your families a safe and enjoyable holiday season.
