December 11th – CMRI awarded A$10mil grant from the ACRF

The Children’s Medical Research Institute has won a record-breaking A$10 million grant from the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. The A$10 million grant is one of the largest grants for medical research equipment in Australian history and will be used to establish The ACRF International Centre for the Proteome of Cancer (ProCan) at the Children’s Medical Institute in Westmead. The centre will be working to analyse tens of thousands of samples of cancer for precise protein levels in small biopsies. In phase two of the project, advanced computer analysis will compare the protein data with already available data for each cancer, providing a major step forward for cancer diagnosis and treatment.
