Physics staff riding to conquer cancer

Help support our Department of Physics staff in their 'Ride to Conquer Cancer' this weekend.  Dr Grant van Riessen and Dr David Hoxley will ride 100 km to Healesville on Saturday 27 October, and then 100 km back on Sunday 28 October.

'We are doing this to demonstrate our solidarity with everyone whose lives have been affected by cancer and its treatment. This includes several current members of the Department of Physics, as well as the wider La Trobe University community,' says Dr Hoxley.

'The funds we raise will support the Peter MacCallum Institute, one of several centres of excellence in innovation, research and treatment. Peter Mac needs our support to maintain its high standards,' he says.

You can make a donation on Dr Hoxley's or Dr Riessen's websites. You can also make a donation on the La Trobe Nanotechnology page
