Peter Mac researchers have found a way to predict which patients with locally advanced rectal cancers might be diverted into a “watch and wait” group, potentially avoiding the need for lower bowel removal surgery and its life-long consequences.
Today we recognised the generosity of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) for their $2m research grant which has provided researchers from Peter Mac and our VCCC partners with cutting edge tech which will help them break new ground in cancer research.
Congratulations to Professor Mark Dawson who was today announced as a recipient of Cancer Council Victoria's Sir Edward Dunlop Research Fellowship. The Fellowship provides $1.55M over five years to support Prof Dawson's pioneering research into epigenetic regulators, unlocking their potential to support new cancer treatments.
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.
