Pancreatic and brain cancer researcher Dr Angelica Merlot has been nominated for 2019 NSW Young Woman of the Year.
Two top UNSW cancer researchers, Professor Christopher Heeschen and Associate Professor Phoebe Phillips, have been awarded grants for research to fight one of the world’s deadliest cancers.
UNSW Medicine’s Professor Minoti Apte, OAM has received the Gastroenterological Society of Australia (GESA) Distinguished Researcher Prize 2018.
A new approach to treating pancreatic cancer using 'educated killer cells' has shown promise, according to a new study by UNSW medical researchers.
The Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, Australia’s peak body for the disease, has awarded a second grant to UNSW's Professor Minoti Apte.
Researchers from Sydney's Garvan Institute and the UK have developed a glow-in-the-dark 'biosensor mouse' that offers a real-time readout of the rapidly changing "skeleton" within cells.
A two-step approach has had promising results in the treatment of pancreatic cancer, which has a dismal five-year survival rate of just 7%.
One reason pancreatic cancer has a particularly low survival rate is the difficulty in getting drugs to the tumour, but new knowledge of how pancreatic cancer cells invade neighbouring cells could change that.
UNSW-led researchers have discovered that pancreatic tumours use unique genetic solutions to drive their growth, providing a new target to test tumour sensitivity to drugs.
UNSW's Minoti Apte has been honoured at the NSW Premier’s Awards for Outstanding Cancer Research for her work on pancreatic cancer.
