Professor Kavallaris and her team aim to dramatically reduce duration of tumour testing programs, with direct benefits to patients from more rapid adoption of recommended treatments.

A/Prof Buchanan and his team will determine how the gut bacteria causes bowel cancer in younger adults by looking at samples.

Our researchers have investigated the potential for cervical cancer to be eliminated as a public health problem globally.

Researchers have found the incidence of bowel cancer has increased in Australians under the age of 50 but screening people 50-74 is still the best approach.

Using the latest approaches to genomic sequencing, Associate Professor Marcel Dinger and his team have identified genes that contribute to rare head and neck cancers.

Research shows Australia is on track to become the first country in the world to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem.
