November 29, 2023 | General

On 29 November 2023, at a morning tea ceremony at the Molecular Horizons Research Institute at UOW, ICC President, Narelle Langridge, presented a cheque for $100,000, which allowed the Institute to retain Chelsea Penney as a Research Assistant and expand its cancer research programs.

Senior Professor, Marie Ranson, from the School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences said, “Chelsea had worked across several projects, including finding new treatment options for metastatic gastric cancer using patient-derived circulating tumour cells; testing the effectiveness of a new drug, Deflexifol, in treating brain tumours, and proving the safety and effectiveness of an implantable device for the improved localised delivery of chemotherapy or immunotherapy.”

During the past 18 years, the ICC has donated more than $1.2 million to the UOW for cancer research projects.”
