Peter Mac researchers have been awarded over $9M in funding from the Federal Government to undertake vital cancer research in 2018.
Peter Mac treated 35,277 patients in 2016-17, up 13% on the previous year. Our clinical activity also grew overall, with more than 155,000 specialist clinic appointments and 65,932 inpatient bed days.
A collaboration between the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and Peter Mac has shed light on how cancer cells can precisely control their behaviour through the action of tiny micro-RNAs. They found these small molecules can make a very big impact on whether a cancer cell lives or dies.
