Overall survival from ovarian cancer has not improved for several decades. Now, a Peter Mac-led team of scientists have discovered a new approach to tackling this disease, by raising the stress levels inside cancer cells.
Twelve Peter Mac researchers have been awarded Investigator Grant funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) to support discovery-based studies on cancer development and research into improved cancer detection and prognosis, and more precise cancer treatments.
Researchers from Peter Mac have discovered an innovative way to dampen severe inflammation, uncovering a potential new therapeutic approach for inflammatory and autoimmune conditions such as arthritis, psoriasis and liver disease, as well as some cancers.
