2018 Chancellor's Lecture

A surgeon's journey: Innovating cancer care through science, dreams and hope

The Centre for Design Innovation would like to extend a warm invitation to any and all to attend Swinburne’s 2018 Chancellor’s Lecture, to be held in the university’s sprawling Advanced Technology Centre in Hawthorn on August 16th.

To be presented by Professor Peter Choong of St Vincent’s Hospital and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, A surgeon’s journey: Innovating cancer care through science, dreams and hope will focus around current innovation that looks to revolutionise the treatment of bone and soft tissue cancers.

With a rich career in medicine, Professor Choong has proven a visionary in developing limb-sparing surgery, providing hope to patients both locally and internationally while utilising revolutionary cancer care technology.


Professor Choong currently leads the Musculoskeletal research program at St Vincent’s Hospital, which unites cell biologists, polymer scientists, metallurgists and surgeons in utilising platform technologies that include stem cell biology, biomaterials and advanced medical imaging.

Our esteemed lecturer has also had over 360 peer-reviewed articles published, focused on a range of topics, including arthritis surgery, the treatment of bone tumours and advanced limb construction.

The night begins at 5:30 pm, with refreshments and networking opportunities available, before Professor Choong begins at 6:30 pm.

Please register your interest.
