Dr David Greening is a cancer researcher at the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science. The Harold Mitchell Health Fellowship enabled David to visit several laboratories and comprehensive cancer institutes in both San Francisco and Toronto.
He also gave several talks at Berkley, UCSF, Mount Sinai Hospital and Toronto University Health Network, and interacted with several key members of these research labs across a range of fields.
The HMF travel fellowship also let David attend the World Human Proteome Organization Congress in Toronto. “I also had the opportunity in presenting my work in understanding the role of the microenvironment in cancer development and progression at the young investigator session, for which I was awarded the premier young post-doctoral presentation from this congress.”
“This fellowship provided the opportunity to not only establish important contacts and direction in the future for my studies but the ability to present my current work at an international conference of high esteem.”
“As a result of this fellowship, I have developed key international collaborations throughout Europe and Asia-Pacific and currently working with several institutes associated with cancer progression and therapeutic intervention.”
