I was drawn to the Institute not just because of the quality of the research, but also because when you sit down and talk to the people who work here, you realise they have a genuine passion for making a difference. It's a culture that starts at the top and permeates through the whole Institute. That's not something you find just anywhere. It sets Children's Cancer Institute apart.
