Theme Overview

The overarching goal of the Cancer Theme is to foster excellence to the full spectrum of cancer-related research, from fundamental genomic discovery, developmental biology, translational research and the development of innovative clinical trials. A core of the Cancer Theme is the study of haematologic malignancies, which are a leading cause of childhood cancer morbidity and mortality, and commonly lethal disorders in adults.

Professor Tim Hughes, Cancer Theme Leader and Professor Deb White, Deputy Theme Leader and Director of Cancer Research are international experts in the biology and treatment of Leukaemia.
