Exposing the Achilles’ Heel of a major cancer gene
Genetic research, involving the University of Melbourne, has identified a vulnerability of lymphoma cells that may lead to a new approach for cancer treatment.
The genomic jigsaw of cancer
University of Melbourne researchers are helping to revolutionise cancer care as they map the human genome; to make cancer a manageable, chronic disease.
The genomic clues to disease
Professor Clara Gaff has moved Genomics out of research into patient care, identifying gene changes that can help with the treatment of genetic diseases.
The evolution of schizophrenia
University of Melbourne research finds that the genetic risks of schizophrenia may eventually evolve out of existence, but the environmental risk factors remain
Who is paying the price of whole-genome sequencing in cancer care?
University of Melbourne research finds that whole-genome sequencing is changing cancer treatment; but its real-world use needs to be measured and understood.
Gene-edited babies: What does the law allow in Australia?
University of Melbourne legal experts argue that Australian laws about embryonic genome editing need to be updated to reflect rapid changes in the field.
What do we need to know about online genetic testing?
The Genioz study based at the MCRI and the University of Melbourne is shedding light on what Australians think about online genetic testing.
The mind behind prize winning science
Professor Jacques Miller from WEHI and the University of Melbourne has been recognised with a prestigious Japan Prize for his pioneering immunology research.
The tip of the CRISPR iceberg
CRISPR gene editing technology has become closely associated with human gene editing, but it offers much wider benefits, says a University of Melbourne expert.
The simple, ethical case for gene editing
Gene editing offers an 'ultimate cure': treating disease at its root. In a new book, two University of Melbourne experts argue the ethical case for gene editing
