Research the Key to Unlock Cancer Mysteries

Posted on 20. Jan, 2010 in News

Cancer Council Victoria announced over $3.2m will go towards high-quality research into the causes and prevention of cancer, as well as clinical research that focuses on diagnosis and treatment.

The Cancer Council Victoria supports research in Victorian universities, hospitals and medical research institutes as well as in its epidemiology, behavioural and tobacco control research centres. This research has significantly contributed to the declining incidence of some cancers and the overall increase in cancer survival in Victoria from 48% in 1990 to well over 60% at present.

Within the electorate of Clayton, three projects from Monash University have been granted almost $900,000.

  • Prof Julian Rood, Prof Martin Brown, and Dr Glen Carter for Development of an innovative approach to treating cancer.
  • Prof Jamie Rossjohn and Prof James Cluskey for Natural killer T cells and cancer progression.
  • Dr Stavros Selemidis, Dr Elizabeth Williams, and Dr Grant Drummond for New therapeutic targets for cancer.
