Rare and Uncommon Cancers Fellowship - 2010

Recipient: Dr Susie Bae.
Value: $80,000

Having seen the value in the work carried out by the H.E.A.R.D. group and its involvement with the CART-wheel project, it was decided to support this immense task and in 2010, the PBF opened a 2 year Fellowship gift to support the directions of the project.

The Fellowship was awarded to the Royal Melbourne Hospital and their decision was to choose Dr Susie Bae as the recipient for her ongoing research in Medical Oncology.
