The first award under BioCurate’s new “Proof of Concept” fund has been granted to the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI). This award will support the key research needed to determine the effectiveness of targeting two proteins that could lead to novel, targeted treatments for triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) and other poor prognosis cancers.
Genes in the human genome are made of DNA. Upon gene expression, a segment of DNA is copied into another molecule called RNA.
Researchers have identified a key part of the pathway in cell communication that controls insulin in the body that may eventually help in developing treatments for diseases such as diabetes and cancers.
The Monash Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences community is deeply saddened by the death of Professor Ron Bayly, who died peacefully on July 1 at the age of 92, after a short illness.
