Seminar: A Laboratory-Based researcher’s Ventures into GI Cancer Clinical Trials: Exploiting Organoids, Immunology and Surgical Models

Prof. Robert Ramsay, Group leader Gastrointestinal Cancer Program at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne Australia

I will describe the development of the GI cancer program at the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Australia and how we have built a translational research platform with eight clinical studies that are recruiting patients to evaluate targeted therapies, particularly immunotherapies and surgery studies. The Ramsay lab has 5 surgeons who are clinical research fellows working towards PhDs that together with the lab team and GI tumour stream clinician are tackling real world research questions within our cancer centre.
