February 4 is World Cancer Day, a global initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).
This year’s World Cancer Day’s theme, ‘I AM and I WILL’, is all about our commitment to act and work together and is a powerful reminder that we all have a role to play in reducing the global impact of cancer.
World Cancer Day reminds us of the global burden of cancer and how each of us play our part in controlling the disease.
At QIMR Berghofer, we are working across 15 different types of cancer in 33 lab groups.
On World Cancer Day, our researchers are embracing the I AM and I WILL campaign.
“I AM a research scientist & I WILL continue to help find answers to endometrial cancer through my genomics research.”
“I AM Associate Professor Tracy O’Mara and I WILL improve women’s health, using genetic datasets to aid in the prediction, prevention and treatment of endometrial cancer.”
