The cancer research programme for the Healthier Lives Challenge was recently featured in the Otago Spotlight Series: Cancer Research event in Wellington.
An audience of health professionals, researchers, policymakers, community organisations, funders and cancer survivors attended a day of presentations from our internationally recognised and distinguished scientists.
The programme included presentations by Professor Parry Guilford, Deputy Director of the Healthier Lives Challenge, and Professor Tony Blakely, Healthier Lives Science Leadership Team.
Attendees were able to meet with researchers, and to contribute their views on the cancer priorities for New Zealand for the Healthier Lives National Science Challenge.
