Bond research student wins international poster award

Bond University PhD student Wolfgang Marx has been awarded the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer - Best Poster Award in Miami.

Wolfgang’s research into the use of ginger supplementation for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting  was recognised during the MASCC/ISOO 2014 International Symposium in Miami, Florida last month. 

The annual symposium focuses on excellence in science and cutting-edge research aimed at enhancing the lives of people coping with cancer.  It has developed a reputation for providing the most current data and innovative techniques and recognises the combined expertise of the world’s premier oncology, medical, surgical and radiology physicians, as well as dietitians, statisticians and other allied health professionals.

As Wolfgang was unable to attend in person, Professor Liz Isenring, Program Head of the Bond University Nutrition and Dietetics programs was delighted to accept on his behalf.

“I’d like to extend my sincere congratulations to Wolfgang for being the successful awardee of the MASCC Best Poster Award,” she said.

“This is a really great achievement, to win an award at an international, multidisciplinary meeting – well done!”

Wolfgang was pleasantly surprised to hear he had been awarded best poster.

“Despite major advances in medications that help control nausea and vomiting, chemotherapy induced nausea is a persistent burden to cancer patients,” Wolfgang said.

“Ginger is a low-cost, widely available intervention that has evidence to suggest it may offer additional protection for patients undergoing chemotherapy.”

Wolfgang is conducting his investigations through a randomised controlled trial in Queensland and Victoria.”
