The 15th Australian Cell Cycle meeting was held last week (March 30th to April 1st) at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney Australia. We had over 80 registered attendees from across Australia and Asia, making this the largest meeting to date. Megan, Tony and myself would like to take this opportunity to thank all the attendees who gave fantastic oral and poster presentations. We would also like to thank all of the Sponsors, whom without their generous support this meeting would not have been able to go ahead.

We are now planing for the 16th ACCM, which is tentatively scheduled for 2017. Make sure you click the subscribe button (top right of page) to keep up to date with the latest Australian Cell Cycle news.

Looking forward to seeing you all again at #ACCM16!

Here is a recent talk I gave to some members of the public at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research.

It is a very general and simple over-view of explaining 1) how cells in your body proliferate, 2) how this goes wrong in cancer, 3) the challenges we are facing in treating and killing cancer, and 4) most importantly how we hoping to improve current treatments in the near future.

A big thanks to all the fantastic Garvan Foundation Team who hosted, filmed, and edited the event.
