2021 Cancer Council WA Early Career Cancer Researcher of the Year

Prize: Award


This award of $10,000 recognises an emerging cancer researcher who has made a significant advance in cancer research within the last 18 - 24 months.

The achievement is judged in terms of impact of one or more peer-reviewed publications that advance our understanding of cancer biology, causes (aetiology), policy, prevention, early detection, diagnosis, management or treatment, health services, improvement of quality of life for cancer patients or palliative care.

The Early Career Cancer Researcher of the Year is awarded to Dr Henry Hui for the development of a new technique in the detection of chromosomal defects in blood cancer cells, called "Immuno-flowFISH", which will advance personalised treatment and improve health outcomes for blood cancer patients.

An ‘early career' cancer researcher is someone who has less than seven years of continuous experience in cancer research and who has no more than five years postdoctoral experience.
