Cure Cancer Australia Funding for Zeyad Nassar
Zeyad Nassar has also been awarded funding from Cure Cancer Australia for 2019.
Again building on his work on lipid metabolic enzymes, this new project will investigate whether targeting these enzymes can prevent treatment resistance in prostate cancer and delay disease progression.
These grants are open to early-career researchers investigating all types of cancer, to kick-start their independent research program, and are highly competitive – Zeyad is one of only 16 across Australia to receive funding in this round.
He was even invited to a reception at Government House in Sydney to receive this award!
