Type: Breast cancer

Dr Beatriz Perez San Juan’s research is focussed on developing new targeted treatments for triple negative breast cancer that overcome the challenge of chemotherapy failure.

Using high resolution molecular profiling technology, Associate Professor Gallego Ortega and his team have been studying MDSCs – trying to understand how they work, so they can develop treatments that block these cells.

A/Professor Croucher and his team are investigating new treatment options for triple-negative breast cancers that have spread.

A/Professor Wang and her team will develop a test to monitor treatment response and watch for the early signs of treatment failure.

Dr Blancafort and her team will develop a test to detect a gene prolific in aggressive forms of breast cancer and identify new treatment targets.

This project will improve understanding of what causes treatment resistance in ER+ breast cancer and identify new ways to overcome it.

Immunotherapy is yet to make a substantial impact on treatment for advanced breast cancer, A/Professor Swarbrick wants to understand why. 

This project will investigate how these vital pain suppressing neurons control pain in advanced breast and prostate cancer.

This project will narrow in on a specific gene regulation process known to play a role in the cancer development.
