Our Cancer researchers are investigating the molecular basis of cancer initiation and progression, how cancer cells communicate with their surrounding environment and the discovery of new therapeutic approaches to combat the disease.

Through the use of model systems of cancer, along with the application of cutting-edge technologies and imaging systems, they are identifying and validating new approaches and targets to improve clinical diagnosis and treatment.

A close relationship with the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute strengthens the ability to achieve bench-to-bedside outcomes.

Research focus

To understand the molecular mechanisms of cancer including processes that lead to abnormal cell growth and survival.

To identify new treatment strategies with improved efficacy and fewer side effects.

To investigate new biomarkers for diagnostic purposes.

To develop new technologies for imaging and monitoring cancer progression.
