Garvan researchers are showing support for Movember, the “hairiest month of the year”. The funds they raise through sponsorship will go to the Movember Foundation, which works to change the face of men’s health worldwide.
Garvan researchers have been keen supporters of Movember for many years. The “Mo Bros” for 2016 are:
- Professor Mike Rogers, Head, Bone Therapeutics Laboratory, Bone Biology Division
- Dr Niall Byrne, Research Officer, Bone Biology Division
- Alicia Rios Wilks, Visiting Student, Bone Biology Division
- James Smith, Visiting Student, Bone Biology Division
- Dr Julian Quinn, Senior Research Officer, Bone Biology Division
- Simon Hamilton, Head of Human Resources
- Eoin Dodson, PhD Student, Cancer Division.
The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising more than half a million dollars and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
Many of Garvan’s “Mo Bros” are members of ProMis, a Garvan-led collaborative program that aims to find a cure for prostate cancer’s metastasis to bone. In 2014, the ProMis program received one of two Movember Revolutionary Team Awards from the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
