The Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute continues to develop collaborative working relationships with prestigious centres worldwide to contribute to the work of the international cancer research community.

Affiliate Agreement, Federation University (Formerly – University of Ballarat (UB))

  • A major development has been the signing of an affiliate agreement between The Institute and Federation University to formalise their joint relationship and commitment to working together in a proactive manner – this strengthens them as centres of excellence in cancer research. The agreement was signed in December 2007 and was made possible through the support of UB Vice-Chancellor, Prof David Battersby.
  • The establishment of the Biomedicine course at Federation University  will continue to provide an entry pathway for students into the medical degree at Deakin University as well as an avenue for students to pursue research degrees at Federation University and The Institute.
