Assoc. Prof. Craig Gedye  Medical Oncologist, Cancer Researcher
Advanced kidney cancer - from zero to combo

Craig is a Medical Oncologist and Cancer Researcher. He works for people with melanoma, brain, prostate, bladder and kidney cancers at the Calvary Mater Newcastle, and is the Director of the HMRI Clinical Trials Unit.

His research focuses on complexity and heterogeneity in cancer – why are cancers different between different people; why are cancers cells different to each other; what does this mean for each person’s treatment? This challenging problem spans projects across the research spectrum, from patient experience, through clinical trials, translational biomarkers and questions in basic science.

Craig is privileged to lead several national cancer clinical trials for the ANZUP and COGNO cancer trials groups, chairs the ANZUP Renal Cancer Subcommittee, and is a member of the Mark Hughes Scientific Advisory Committee, HNEHLD Clinical Trials Ethics Subcommittee, COGNO Scientific Advisory Committee and ANZUP Cancer Trials Scientific Advisory Committee.

This webinar will be moderated by Kath Schubach, ANZUNS President.
