As a Premium Building Block Partner, Woodside assists the Fiona Wood Foundation Centre of Excellence in supporting senior Post-Doctoral Researchers. These Researchers, together with all the staff of the Centre, work to transform knowledge into ground-breaking clinical outcomes.|
In partnership with the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, Woodside has supported a fellowship in cancer research since 2014. The first recipient of the Woodside Fellowship in Cancer Research has been Professor Ruth Ganss. Professor Ganss, is scientific head of Cancer and Cell Biology at the Perkins, and leads her own Laboratory which is focused on finding a way to effectively treat pancreatic and liver cancer tumours.
Woodside's support of cancer research has been inspired by the dedication and commitment of our employees and their passion to make a difference.
