Research we are currently funding:
Professor Maija Kohonen-Corish and her team have been developing crucial evidence on MCC protein alteration with the aim of creating new treatment targets and biomarkers for bowel cancer.
Professor Baker and his team aim to develop a new blood-based test to detect bowel cancer in its early stages.
The outcomes of this new study will be the identification of key players involved in the function of a protein called MCC and how they could be targeted in cancer treatment.
This multinational randomised trial is the first randomised study of aspirin for cancer survival and could result in a change of practice across the world.
This research will be used to study myeloma in the early stages to see whether normal bone cells switch on these dormant cells and cause the cancer to grow.
Bowel cancer development is driven by a molecular network that helps the cancer cells to grow and survive. Professor Zhang are exploring whether this network could be targeted and blocked.
Impact we've achieved with our research:
A team of Cancer Council researchers has shown that physical activity is an important factor in preventing cancer, particularly cancer of the colon, irrespective of body weight.
Researchers at Cancer Council NSW have conducted an Australian-first study that estimated future bowel cancer rates and deaths.
