Dr Bill Panagopoulos

Thanks to the support of The Hospital Research Foundation’s (THRF) valued donors, cancer researchers Dr Bill Panagopoulos and PhD student Alex Shoubridge from the Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research (BHI) attended a world-leading bone conference in the Clare Valley.

Below is Dr Panagopolous’ experience of the conference.

The 10th Clare Bone Meeting was held at the Clare Convention Centre from the 23 – 26 March where both national and international participants had the opportunity to hear from world-leading researchers in the areas of bone cancer, bone fractures and infection.

The conference was a great opportunity to hear from basic scientists, clinicians, health professionals and postgraduate students from all disciplines working on bone research from Australia and overseas. We also had time to speak with valuable researchers and clinicians, and form new collaborations that will benefit my research at the BHI.

My PhD student Ms Shoubridge presented her research findings which is determining the potential of soybean as a therapeutic treatment for bone regeneration.
