Professor Cheah wins 2023 WA Cancer Researcher of The Year!

Congratulations to Professor Chan Cheah  who has been honoured with the prestigious 2023 Cancer Researcher of the Year Award by Cancer Council WA. We are hearted to see his tireless dedication and contribution being acknowledged by the greater medical community! Professor Cheah, who was also awarded Cancer Council WA Early Career Cancer Researcher of the Year in 2018, said he was honoured to be named Cancer Council WA’s 2023 Cancer Researcher of the Year.

“I would like to thank Cancer Council WA for this incredible honour. More than one thousand West Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer each year, and thousands more are living with the disease. While some are cured using chemotherapy, many are not. They need better treatments and clinical trials are the fastest way to deliver them. In five years we have created one of the most successful Haematology Clinical Research programs in the country, delivering cutting edge treatments to WA patients years before commercial availability”.
