ANZGOG congratulates Members Dr Paul Cohen and Prof Kum Kum Khanna for their success in the Fund for New Research Grant round 2021.

Dr Cohen will be granted $100K for his clinical concept –  ‘STRatIfication of Vulvar squamous cell carcinoma by HPV and p53 status to guide Excision: the STRIVE study’.

Prof Khanna will be granted $100K for her pre-clinical concept – ‘An Effective PARP Inhibitor-CBL0137 Combination Therapy for High-grade serous ovarian cancers (HGSOCs)’.

There were 15 applications for the Fund for New Research Grant 2021. Each application was reviewed by two assessors and discussed at the ANZGOG Research Advisory Committee (RAC). All applications that were supported by the RAC were further reviewed by the Fund for New Research Grant Panel and scored against a criteria for either clinical or pre-clinical studies. The recommended priority projects were finally reviewed and ratified by the ANZGOG Board.

The Fund for New Research is made possible by public donations, bequests and philanthropic grants from charities with shared interests in ANZGOG’s research work. With this support, we have been able to support 16 studies from 2015 to 2021 inclusive.
