The John Nott Cancer Fellowship Travel Support Fund

Congratulations to Dr Alan Prem Kumar in receiving the John Nott Cancer Fellowship Travel Support Fund 2012 from Cancer Council Western Australia. This highly competitive international award is given to either an Australian or International clinical cancer leader/researcher to visit Western Australia to help advance local knowledge and skills in the area of clinical cancer management with Professor Barry Iacopetta (CSI Singapore and University of Western Australia) and Professor Arun Dharmarajan (Curtin University).

The John Nott Cancer Fellowship Travel Support Fund, set up in 1988, is managed by the Cancer Council Western Australia in association with members of the Department of General Surgery at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. The prime interest of Mr John Nott, a colorectal cancer patient, was to help improve treatment of cancer by funding the visits of experts to WA to teach local clinicians and researchers.
