Amanda Tauber from Queensland’s Bond University wowed the audience with her plans to slam the brakes on metastatic cancer.
Metastatic cancers are ones that spread to other parts of the body. This creates tumours in multiple locations, not just one that can be targeted. Often for cancer patients, this is the worst news to receive – treatment is more difficult, and the prognosis is worse.
But Amanda Tauber’s research looks at how this process can be slowed. Slowing that spread will give doctors more time to provide life-saving treatment before its too late.
