The Lowy Cancer Research Centre Seminar Series is honoured to have Prof Richard Lock speak at this month's seminar.
 
Prof Lock is Head of Leukaemia Biology Program (CCIA) and NH&MRC Senior Research Fellow. He has successfully developed a clinically relevant laboratory model for the in vivo growth of human Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) cells - the first such model in Australia. The model now plays a central role in the preclinical evaluation of anticancer agents and the identification of new targets for targeted therapies.
 
LIght refreshments will be available following the seminar .
