Dean's Distinguised Lecture Series - July : Preserving hearing in children with hepatoblastoma Other events...
Over the last few decades there have been spectacular advances in the treatment of hepatoblastoma, the most common malignant liver tumour of childhood, and now most Australian children who develop this disease will be cured. Unfortunately cure often comes at a price, and many children develop severe hearing loss as an adverse effect of one of the drugs used in their treatment. This lecture tells the story of the history of treatment of hepatoblastoma, and recent successes in preventing hearing loss in affected children.

Derek Roebuck recently moved to Perth to take up the position of Professor of Paediatric Radiology at UWA and the Perth Children's Hospital. He previously spent 19 years in England where he worked as a consultant paediatric interventional radiologist and more recently Head of Clinical Service (Radiology) at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London.
