COSA's Survivorship Research Fellowship program was established in 2020 to help build capacity in survivorship research. The Fellows will receive mentorship, guidance and support from the Survivorship Executive Committee, which comprises internationally renowned senior clinicians and researchers in cancer survivorship. Each project will help advance survivorship research and improve outcomes for all Australians after cancer treatment. The Executive was very impressed with the quality of applications submitted, and we congratulate the successful Fellows.

If you are interested in keeping up to date on the progress of these projects and learning more about the work of the Survivorship Group, remember to select the Survivorship Group in MY COSA.
