Wagstaff Laboratory

Cancer Targeting and Nuclear Therapeutics

Welcome to the Wagstaff Lab

Breast cancer remains one of the leading causes of death in Australia, with current treatments often causing debilitating unwanted toxic side effects. Our lab aims to determine the underlying cellular differences between cancer and normal cells, and to understand the causes of these changes, so that we can develop new drugs and delivery agents to target them specifically.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Cancer and Infection & Immunity Programs, and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Our research

By determining the underlying cellular differences between cancer and normal cells, we are able to understand the causes of these changes and to develop new drugs and delivery agents to target them specifically.

Similarly, infectious diseases such as those caused by viruses and cellular stress conditions often rely upon or generate changes in the subcellular targeting of various proteins, particularly those involved in transport between the cytoplasm and the nucleus. We identify these protein interactions and harness them to develop novel anti-viral drugs and to uncover the cellular pathways, which underpin these important conditions.
