VCA Fellowships awarded to SVI researchers

SVI researchers Associate Professor Carl Walkley and Dr Andrew Deans have both been awarded Mid Career Fellowships from the Victorian Cancer Agency (VCA).

The funding announced today delivers close to $20 million in grants to support Victorian researchers who are at the forefront of the latest discoveries in the fight against cancer. As part of the agency’s commitment to supporting and retaining talented individuals in the field of cancer research in Victoria, the VCA designed a new Fellowship Scheme to support mid-career researchers undertaking high quality translational cancer research.

Both Carl and Andrew are amongst the first recipients of funding through this scheme.

Carl will use the support to further his work into the development of models of human cancer to improve our understanding of bone and blood cancer. In particular, Carl will use his models of human disease to focus on improving the treatment and outcomes for patients with myelodysplastic syndrome and the bone cancer, osteosarcoma.
