Congratulations to Prof Amanda Ullman, Prof Samantha Keogh, A/Prof Natalie Bradford, Tricia Kleidon, Rachel Edwards and the entire team on a massive $2 million grant from the Cancer Council Queensland to support their research to prevent healthcare associated harm for children being treated for cancer.

• Cancer Council Queensland, Accelerating Collaborative Cancer Research Grant $2M ($1.4M CCQ; $600K UQ) Preventing adverse events during paediatric cancer treatment: A multi-site hybrid randomised controlled trial of catheter lock solutions.

In this world-first trial, the research team will evaluate the effectiveness of the CVAD lock solution (T-EDTA) compared to usual care (heparin and normal saline) to reduce infections, thromboses and blockages for children being treated for cancer. The team has a PhD scholarship available within the project, and would love to hear from you if you are interested. (a.ullman@uq.edu.au)
