Centenary Institute’s Professor John Rasko AO, Group Head of our Gene and Stem Cell Therapy lab, talked to Dr Maryanne Demasi about the use of life enhancing drugs in sports on the latests episode of Catalyst.
Professor Rasko explains how Erythropoietin (EPO) improves a persons stamina, as Catalyst investigates the substances at the forefront of the sports doping controversy.
Congratulations to Professor Geoff McCaughan the head of Centenary’s Liver Injury and Cancer research program and director of the Australian National Liver Transplant Unit at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital who has won this year’s Distinguished Service Award of the International Liver Transplantation Society (ILTS).
The award was presented today at ILTS’s International Conference held in Sydney and has been presented annually since 1993 to a member of the Society who has demonstrated outstanding service to ILTS and is a recognized leader in the area of liver transplantation. The list reads like a Who’s Who of transplantation.
