Australian Team on Tour!
Every year Dorothy Keefe (MASCC President) closes her laboratory in late June so that her team can travel to The MASCC Annual Scientific Symposium and visit other labs around the World.  On arrival at the Mucositis Workshop in Berlin this month she was delighted to find her entire team - see photograph. Everyone had either a poster, a presentation,or both, at the meeting. There is some concern, however, from the team about the lack of travel opportunities in 2016 when the meeting comes to Adelaide. But on the plus side, everyone is looking forward to hosting visitors to Adelaide and to the lab!
