A note about some of the research that our ride sponsors.
In February 2015, a delegation of B2B riders met with the research team from the Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology located at the University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus. Michelle from the Foundation Cure Brain Cancer also attended. This team is one of the groups that the proceeds of our ride helps support. One of the project areas that the team are working on is combating the occurrence of Glioblastomas, which is explained further in the attached article that was drafted by the team's liaison officer.
The delegation appreciated the informal seminar and facility tour that the researchers provided. It gave us both an insight into the high level of effort being focused towards the issue and the 'human face' involved in what is a multidisciplinary approach.
We were absolutely enthralled during the hour or so that we spent there and were quite inspired by the enthusiasm demonstrated by the research group.
We came away convinced that some of our best people are on this.
