I have been following and citing the excellent research from ECU in exercise and cancer for many years and in 2014 I visited their Institute of Health and Wellness (now the Exercise Medicine Research Institute).

The facilities are world-class and the research environment is vibrant and successful, contributing substantially to improving outcomes for people with cancer.

I was particularly pleased to see the translational work being done providing distinctive services directly to cancer patients in a University clinic. In my experience this is quite unique.
