A breakfast celebration was held today to let our colleagues and collaborators in the clinical department of the Radium Hospital know about our new grants from the Norwegian Cancer Society, the Norwegian Radium Hospital’s own Endowment Fund and COST. Participants included staff from all walks of hospital life, including members of staff from the operating theatre, surgical wards and administrative services.
At the celebration, Kjersti presented the projects that we are working on in our group and how the grants will be used to forward research within the field of peritoneal cancer research.
The celebration was attended by about 40 people, and the feedback was very positive, with several participants asking great questions about the projects during the meeting. We now expect several invitations to present our research in more detail to the collaborating units. Interest in and motivation to continue biobanking is very high!
