Revolutionising triple negative breast cancer treatment
Thursday, 27th October 2022, 10:30am to 11:30pm (AEDT)
Triple negative breast cancer is an aggressive disease with a greater likelihood of spreading around the body and recurring within five years than other breast cancers. Join us to hear from Associate Professor Christine Chaffer. Her team has found that an experimental drug, seviteronel, combined with chemotherapy, could be twice as effective in reducing the size of tumours than chemotherapy alone. Spaces are limited in the Auditorium so registration is essential.
BITE SIZE SCIENCE: Accelerating genomic diagnosis of disease
Thursday 28 October 2021, 12:00pm-12:30pm (AEDT)
Genomic tests are increasingly used to diagnose genetic disease and give families answers about their health. These tests look at all of a person’s DNA, and all of their genes, at once. However, many diseases still can’t be diagnosed because they are caused by long, repeated sequences in the genetic code that are too hard to read with the available technology. Garvan researchers are developing new methods to read through these long stretches of DNA to accelerate the diagnosis of previously undiagnosed disease.
Join us for our upcoming seminar with Dr Ira Deveson and Dr Kishore Kumar to learn about these exciting new approaches to accelerate diagnosis and profoundly impact people’s lives.
