We are proud to present

The 2019 Sydney Catalyst International Translational Cancer Research Symposium

From Bench to Bedside and Beyond


On behalf of the Organising Committee and Sydney Catalyst, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 2019 Sydney Catalyst International Translational Cancer Research Symposium.

The idea to host this biennial Symposium was born seven years ago with the aim to enhance Sydney Catalysts' objectives to improve outcomes for people affected by cancer. This event brings together outstanding teams of researchers and clinicians, from leading institutions, working across the full translational research continuum. 

Sydney Catalyst is passionate about supporting a sustainable, comprehensive and successful translational research program, which as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This Symposium supports that vision by bringing together exceptional International and Australian guests to share their ground breaking research and discoveries.

The theme for this years' Symposium - From Bench to Bedside and Beyond - inspires collaboration across the translational spectrum. Our scientific program and poster sessions have been designed to foster discussions and inspire participants to initiate research collaborations.

We hope your participation at the Symposium will be scientifically rewarding and you have the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful harbour city, Sydney. 

Best wishes,

Co-Chairs, Dr Claudia Rutherford and Dr Anthony Joshua
