2018 United States-Australia Cancer Moonshot Roundtable 

Associate Professor Sherene Loi shows Vice President Joe Biden around the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Melbourne (July, 2016).

On March 22, the U.S.-Australia Cancer Moonshot Roundtable will take place in Canberra. This Roundtable follows on from three agreements signed during former Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Australia in July 2016. 

The aim of the meeting is to broaden collaboration between the U.S. National Cancer Institute and Australian organizations in cancer research. It also aims to deepen cooperation between multiple levels of government, top research institutions, and the cancer advisory community in Australia.

In addition to Directors from the U.S. National Cancer Institute such as Dr Ted Trimble, participants include Chargé d’Affaires James Carouso of the U.S. Embassy in Canberra, Professor Anne Kelso of the National Health and Medical Research Council; Professor Ian Frazer of the Medical Research Future Fund; and Andrew Forrest of the Minderoo Foundation.
