Peter Mac scientists working with the drug company Senhwa Biosciences have developed a new way to target cancer, and have demonstrated it can stall disease progression in patients who are no longer responding to conventional treatments.
Peter Mac Research is gaining two new star recruits this month. Prof Ben Hogan and A/Prof Belinda Parker will join the Peter Mac team, bringing with them their world-leading research into the way that cancers can spread and respond to different types of treatments.
Professor Joseph Sambrook transformed research at Peter Mac and set us on course to becoming a cancer centre of international standing. He was a renowned molecular biologist when he joined Peter Mac in 1994, and then became a pivotal figure in our history.
The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre acknowledges the traditional
owners of the land on which our five sites are located throughout Victoria.
We recognise their strength and resilience and pay our respects
to their Elders past and present.
