Both Roche and NZSO recognise the importance of keeping up-to-date with international developments in cancer research and oncology clinical practice.
Translational research bridges the gap from basic science in the lab to clinical practice, in order to enhance human health and well-being. It’s sometimes referred to as bench to bedside to community. Research is most effective when clinicians and scientists work together and a key role of NZSO is to encourage collaboration between clinicians and scientists.
This award provides a unique opportunity for NZ cancer research teams to upskill an integral team member, so that the team can work together more effectively and improve research output.
