"Research can play a key role in helping young people reach their potential," explains Simon. "We hope that the 13CABS Research Award will help investigators research and address some of the health challenges facing young people today".
Foundation Director, Anne Gribbin thanked Simon and Paul and said that "having 13CABS as a supporter of our research grants program demonstrates that the wider community understand that research outcomes make a difference to our patients.”
