Registration Open: Prostate Cancer Collaborative Research 2015 Symposium, November 25 – 28, 2015
Registration is now open for the Prostate Cancer Collaborative Research 2015 Symposium to be held at the Translational Research Institute (TRI), Brisbane, Australia from Wednesday 25th to Saturday 28th November 2015.
The Prostate Cancer Collaborative Research Alliance was recently transformed from the Australian-Canadian Prostate Cancer Research Alliance (Aus-Can PCRA) that was founded in 2008. This Alliance currently has more than 285 clinical and scientific members from Australia, Canada & internationally. With the establishment of the Prostate Cancer Collaborative Research Alliance, all Aus-Can PCRA members have been transitioned to Prostate Cancer Collaborative Research Alliance membership.
Following the success of the four previous Aus-Can PCRA Symposia, the Prostate Cancer Collaborative Research 2015 Symposium will provide an excellent opportunity for prostate cancer clinicians, scientists, and other professionals to meet in a global context and share their research in a collaborative environment. Feedback from previous Aus-Can PCRA Symposia has consistently been very positive, with the event well-regarded as a nicely specialised meeting to generate and foster collaborations which differentiates it amongst the various international prostate cancer meetings.
The Prostate Cancer Collaborative Research 2015 Symposium will commence with a welcome reception on Wednesday afternoon 25th November and conclude mid-afternoon on Saturday 28th November. A preliminary program is available outlining draft topics for sessions which will feature short presentations focused on facilitating interactive discussions and opportunities to showcase research areas for collaboration.

The TRI is home to the largest critical mass of prostate cancer researchers in Australia and is the primary sponsor of the Symposium.
As Australia’s newest and most comprehensive medical research and biopharmaceutical facility, the TRI is located on the Princess Alexandra Hospital campus in Brisbane, Australia. TRI combines clinical and translational research to advance progress from laboratory discovery to application in the community.
The seven-storey TRI building comprises four floors of laboratory research plus facilities for research support, administration and teaching. A bio-pharmaceutical manufacturing facility is adjacent to the main TRI building, housing the first major mammalian biopharmaceutical production facility in Australia.
Stunning by nature, Brisbane is renowned for its relaxed outdoor lifestyle, friendly locals, cultural scene and diverse attractions. There is plenty for visitors to experience and make the most of every moment.
