The Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute, like many organisations and businesses, is navigating the major social and economic impact of COVID-19.
We are making responsible and precautionary measures to support the health and safety of our researchers, staff, students, supporters and visitors. We are practicing strict social distancing principles and have implemented flexible working arrangements for staff and students. The Institute is committed to ensure the momentum of our research and our work continues at this uncertain time.
It is with regret that fundraising events including the Answer for Cancer Dinner and Tom O’Toole’s A Model Ford fundraising tour across outback Australia have been cancelled. Additionally, we will not be hosting any seminars, events or tours at the Institute until further notice.
We hope to reschedule events and tours later in the year and will look forward to welcoming you back to the Institute.
Our recently upgraded tissue bank facility, will continue to be managed and will be gratefully accepting tissue and blood samples.
Thank you to our community of donors, supporters and volunteers for your ongoing support as we ride these unsettling times. Our work and passion for advancing the understanding and treatment of cancer goes on and we look forward to sharing with you our research through this time across Facebook, Instagram, our website and newsletter.
