Postdoctoral researchers from across Australia are encouraged to attend this popular, free annual symposium.

This is a unique opportunity to share and learn the latest developments across a wide array of cancer research, including basic biology, translational research, molecular pathology, bioinformatics, psychosocial oncology, epidemiology, clinical trials, genomics and immunology.

Featuring plenary lectures, talks and flash talks, this conference provides an excellent forum for postdoctoral researchers to share data, discover new fields of research, and forge connections with both like-minded and unexpected future collaborators.

The VCCC Alliance Post-Doc Symposium aims to increase the visibility of post-doc research in Australia and is committed to diversity and equality in our community. 

This year's event will officially open with a prestigious new plenary session, the Tony Burgess Medal Address, to be held on the eve of the symposium and broadcast live to delegates from the VCCC building.
