It is with great pleasure that we announce a collaboration between the Childhood Cancer Association and SAHMRI (the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute), working together to unite researchers and families in the fight against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL).

This new partnership will help to better inform current research practices and support services available for cancer patients.

Congrats to Professor Deborah White, SAHMRI Cancer Director who has been honoured with the National Health & Medical Research Council’s Award for Research Excellence, receiving the R.D. Wright Biomedical Career Development Fellowship – Level 2. 

Deb’s current research focus is precision medicine in ALL to transform treatment and outcomes for ALL patients and she is the ALL Flagship Lead for Australian Genomics and the SA Scientific lead for Zero Children’s Cancer.
