The only machine of its kind in Australia, the brand new Laser Scanning Cytometer holds the key to developing new anti-cancer drugs which directly target cells, resulting in more effective treatment with less side effects. The $600,000 machine was installed as part of a $2 million upgrade funded by the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) and is used by a team of 40 researchers at St Vincent's Institute. http://acrf.com.au #cancerresearch #cancer #technology

Researchers from Children's Cancer Institute Australia (CCIA) focus on drug screening to develop new, better and targeted drugs for childhood cancer at the ACRF Drug Discovery Centre. These drugs will just target cancer cells, whilst keeping the healthy cells alive - causing less side effects in kids with cancer. #cancerresearch #fightcancer #innovations

New research, supported with significant funding by the Australian Cancer Research Foundation and published in Genome Medicine, has suggested the treatment ‘Herceptin’ could bring new hope to these pancreatic cancer patients. Herceptin is currently available through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme for breast and gastric cancers with high expressions of HER2, and clinical trials will show whether the drug is equally effective in pancreatic cancer patients. #cancernews
