Lawrence Penn Chair Professor Mark Molloy and his team at the Kolling Institute hosted a Red Apple Day morning tea to raise awareness of bowel cancer during June.
Attendees included staff from the local Royal North Shore hospital along with members of Bowel Cancer Australia’s Lived Experience Advisory Group.
Bowel Cancer Australia’s Lived Experience Advisory Group consists of individuals with a lived experience of bowel cancer, either as a patient, loved one or family member.
Participants contribute their perspective to Lawrence Penn Chair Professor Mark Molloy’s research, projects and proposals, to best reflect what matters most to those affected by Australia’s second deadliest cancer.
Following a brief presentation, Prof Molloy and Professor Alexander Engel led the group on a tour of their laboratory, which recently became home to two new mass spectrometers thanks to a significant financial gift of $500,000 from Bowel Cancer Australia.
