After leukemia, brain cancer (or malignant brain tumours) is the most common childhood cancer. Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease. The sad fact is that in Israel about 26,000 children are living with a brain or spinal cord tumours.
AUSiMED believes in supporting fellowships as a way to nurture a new generation of medical experts in Israel and Australia. AUSiMED is proud to offer a new neuro-oncology fellowship opportunity in Australia for an Israeli paediatrician. This 2020 Fellowship, which is generously supported by the Lowy Foundation, focuses on the improvement of clinical care for children with brain tumours.
This clinical and research fellowship is based at the Kids Cancer Centre located within the Sydney Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Cancer Institute Australia — the country’s only independent medical research institute solely dedicated to childhood cancer. The selected Fellow will be supervised by Professors Richard Cohn and David Ziegler and will work alongside a cohesive team of experts on child brain tumours every step of the journey, from laboratory work to direct contact with the patients and their families.
