Talk about a triple threat! 🔬 Professor Ian Yang (left), Dr Fran Kinnear (middle), and Associate Professor Henry Marshall (right) are all contributing to lung and thoracic research, despite working on different individual and team projects. 🥽🧬🧪

"We take insights from the lab straight to the bedside, it's direct patient care from acute emergency to critical care," Associate Professor Marshall said.

"It's not always easy but if you're willing to take the risk and the opportunity, then you've got to go for it," Dr Kinnear said.

"The strength of collaboration from both the clinical and research teams at TPCH mean that we're advancing the healthcare on offer here for our community, to have it recognised is a great honour for us all," Professor Yang said.
