2012 WESFARMERS HARRY PERKINS ORATION : Opportunities and challenges for cancer research and treatment - perspective from a cancer centre Other events...
Professor Trapani is a world leader in cancer research. His research interests include the immunopathology of viral and auto-immune diseases and cancer immunotherapy. Professor Trapani has published over 230 research papers.

Professor Trapani’s address will focus on the future of cancer treatment. If researchers are claiming so many ‘breakthroughs’, why are so many of my friends getting cancer? Are we really making progress? The answer is a definite ‘yes’ there is much hope and good news… come to hear about how we can work together to reduce the burden of cancer on patients and carers.

The Oration has been established in memory of the late Harry Perkins, who was WAIMR’s inaugural Chairman and the driving force behind the formation of the Institute, whilst he was also Chairman of Wesfarmers. He believed that without a high quality research environment in WA, it would be difficult to recruit and retain the best doctors and, as a consequence, service delivery to the community would suffer.

The Harry Perkins Oration is a FREE event for the community but registration is essential as places are limited.
Speaker(s) Professor Joseph Albert Trapani, Executive Director Cancer Research, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne
