Brain Cancer Vaccine Project Launch

On Wednesday February 8, we were thrilled to announce we have partnered with The University of Queensland, committing $1.2 million to develop a brain cancer vaccine. With in-kind support from the University and a total project investment of approximately $2.4 million over a three year period, it is the first of its kind to apply technology to treat paediatric brain cancer.

The media coverage of the launch was widespread, featured on the front page of The Australian, and the podcast The Front, in the Herald Sun, Courier Mail and across the news, on Channel 7, Channel 9, and Channel 10. Check out all the coverage HERE

Robert Connor Dawes (RCD) Foundation Founder, CEO and Connor’s mum, Liz Dawes OAM was there, along with RCD Foundation Research Manager Dr Kim Wark, Music Therapy Manager Sarah Punch, and our Legacy Ambassadors Marisa Rosin (who lost her son Marcus to ependymoma) and Kellie Crampton (who lost her son Wyatt to ependymoma). A very special thanks to The University of Queensland for hosting the launch, and providing a tour of the lab.
