We were excited to welcome Professor Ian Tannock to Sydney Catalyst while he was visiting Australia under the auspices of the Concord Clinical School.

Two teams went to battle over the highly charged question, 'Advances in Oncology: Can We Afford the Future?', resulting in a fantastic night of insights, belly laughs, and valuable networking time. 

  • Chair: Professor Janette Vardy [Medical Oncologist, Concord Hospital]
  • Debate Adjudicator: Professor John Simes [Director, Sydney Catalyst]
  • Team 1: Professor Ian Tannock [Emeritus Professor of Medicine and Medical Biophysics, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and University of Toronto] and Dr. Alison Pearce [Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow, CREST, UTS]
  • Team 2: Professor Michael Boyer [Chief Clinical Officer, Chris O'Brien Lifehouse] and Dr. Deme Karikios [Medical Oncologist, Nepean Hospital]
