24 - 26 August 2023 | the Westin, Perth

On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand Children’s Haematology/ Oncology Group (ANZCHOG), you are warmly invited to partner with us for the 2023 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) to be held from Thursday 24 to Saturday 26 August 2023 in Perth, Western Australia

Paediatric oncology and haematology are highly intertwined and collaborative specialties, with multidisciplinary care forming the backbone of therapy. The opportunity to share our collective experiences, learn about new therapies, and network with national and international colleagues is key to driving improvements in our fields. The Annual ANZCHOG ASM brings together multidisciplinary professionals in research, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of children and adolescents with cancer and blood disorders from across Australia and New Zealand. International leaders in the fields of cancer and blood disorders will complement our national colleagues.

The 2022 ASM heralded the return to in person meeting after the pandemic driven lockdowns. Local innovation, education and research was showcased which highlighted the breadth and talent of our successful health professionals from across Australia and New Zealand. The 2022 ASM revealed the successful integration of an industry-led program within the conference.

In 2023, we will be focusing on translational research that is changing our practice. National and international leaders in the field will showcase latest developments in diagnosis and management of cancer and blood disorders. On behalf of the Organising Committee, we welcome you to join us, and encourage you to explore the benefits of participating as a partner with us this year. Please contact Thomas Howden from MCI by email ( or phone (+61 2 9213 4016) for further discussion.
