HCRA are hosting a Community Showcase event on Wednesday 18 July 2018. Hear from ten HCRA cancer researchers from a range of career stages, who will share their research through an oral and poster presentation.
The aim of this showcase will be to:
- Allow HCRA researchers to gain experience in talking about their research to a community audience.
- Give community members the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback for our researchers to consider and inform the future development of the cancer research projects.
- Begin to establish connections and working relationships between our HCRA research membership and community members.
