Event Overview
Welcome message:

On behalf of the Trans Tasman Radiation Oncology Group (TROG Cancer Research), it is with pleasure that we invite you to our 30th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The event will provide a unique opportunity for all health professionals with an interest in radiation oncology, to collectively discuss and influence the direction of current and future cancer clinical trials.

Our 2018 ASM celebrates 30 years since TROG Cancer Research began, so join us at the meeting and take part in our Subspecialty Group sessions, as well as full-day, interactive Research Workshops and take the opportunity to relax and network at our social afternoon, Welcome Function and Gala Dinner. 

In 2018 TROG Cancer Research celebrates its 30th Anniversary and in those 30 years, TROG Cancer Research has been making a real difference through quality radiotherapy research. We are proud to be known as one of the highest recruiting collaborative trials group in Australia and New Zealand. Since our inception, over 13,500 people have volunteered to participate in more than 90 TROG clinical trials. We collaborate with over 200 hospitals and cancer centres throughout the world. Our organisation, consisting of over 1,400 Australian and international members, is made up of an extensive network of oncologists, radiation therapists, physicists, data managers and other researchers conducting research across a range of cancers. 


Dr Neil Watkins

Position held: Petre Chair in Cancer Biology - Garvan Institute of Medical Research

The unifying goal of my research is to understand how aberrant activation of embryonic signalling pathways contributes to the initiation, growth and self-renewal of cancer. To achieve this goal, I have used a diverse range of model systems in several different tumor types to create a preclinical program that has made fundamental discoveries in cancer biology.
