Member Experiences in an Australian Translational Cancer Research Cenre

Sydney Catalyst Translational Cancer Research Centre is a multidisciplinary consortium of researchers and clinicians from institutions in metropolitan Sydney and regional New South Wales, Australia. This study aimed to qualitatively explore the experience of being a member of Sydney Catalyst and to identify members' understanding of translational research and perceptions of the benefits of membership of a TRC.
