The three Snow Fellowships are valued at $8 million each, and the funding is used to develop world-leading teams based in Australia’s leading research organisations. This $24 million funding brings Snow Medical’s biomedical research investment to $53 million over the past two years.

 The three Snow Fellows are:

    Program title: Epigenetic plasticity in development and cancer
  2. Associate Prof. Marina Pajic: Garvan institute of Medical Research, Sydney
    Program Title: Precision Oncology for Pancreatic Cancer Research Program
  3. Dr Shom Goel: The University of Melbourne and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre
    Program Title: Understanding and targeting therapy-induced senescence in cancer

“Snow Medical backs the boldest and best of the next generation of researchers. We set out to find exceptional visionary leaders, and our three 2021 Snow Fellows are truly outstanding,” Snow Medical Chair Tom Snow said.
