Stigma can result in physical, psychological and societal harm
Research we are currently funding:
Professor Hansbro and his team have been studying the role of gut bacteria in chronic lung diseases including emphysema.
The project has strong potential to achieve major benefits for patient care, because it brings the concept of personalised medicine much closer to reality.
Professor Hansbro is identifying the genetic mutations linked to the development and progression of lung cancer. This will be then used to create tests for the early detection of lung cancer
The aim of this project is to rapidly identify new therapies that can improve the effectiveness of cis-platinum chemotherapy in lung cancer.
Impact we've achieved with our research:
Professor David Watkins and his team have discovered a previously unknown reason for treatment resistance in lung cancer.
A study by Cancer Council NSW has revealed that over 1 in 3 lung cancer patients seek emergency care around the time of diagnosis.
Cancer Council NSW researchers have evaluated the performance of a lung cancer risk tool used to predict current and ex-smokers at the highest risk of developing lung cancer.
Cancer Council researchers have found lung cancer rates for women are still rising. Calculating cancer trends provides vital data to help plan health care needs of future patients.
