Research You Are Supporting
Your Longest Table will help progress research fighting to save lives from the most common cancers affecting our community.
Here is a snapshot of research you’ll be supporting…
Blocking the pathway to cancer spread
With chemotherapy often ineffective against triple negative breast cancer, a team led by Associate Professor Yeesim Khew-Goodall, Head of the Cell Signalling Laboratory at the Centre for Cancer Biology (CCB), are busy researching more about the pathway and how to impede it.
Breakthrough in the fight against lung cancer
Imagine treating cancer with a puffer? For Dr Joanna Woodcock and her team at the Centre for Cancer Biology this is not as far-fetched as you might think. They are investigating ways to administer a chemical compound treatment directly to the cancer cells, with one of the options through inhalable forms.
Giving hope to patients with aggressive brain cancer
Leading medical oncologist Professor Michael Brown, Head of Translational Oncology at the Centre for Cancer Biology (CCB), is embarking on a new T-cell therapy for adult and paediatric patients with aggressive brain cancers. His team are engineering cancer-killing T-cells in the laboratory to create CAR T-cells which can target the cancer cells.
