In break-through research, researchers have identified genes in mice that appear to be important in the spread of breast cancer to bones. Australian women have a one in eleven life-time risk of developing breast cancer. For many women, early diagnosis and treatment provides a complete cure. However, if the tumour spreads, the disease is hard […]
Queensland researchers have discovered new genes that are important in producing the ‘slime’ that protects the human colon from cancer-causing agents. Currently about one in 23 Australians are likely to develop colorectal cancer, a disease that attacks the lining of the colon and rectum at the end of the human digestive system.
Fresh Science is a national competition helping early-career researchers find, and then share, their stories of discovery.
The program takes up-and-coming researchers with no media experience and turns them into spokespeople for science, giving them a taste of life in the limelight, with a day of media training and a public event in their home state.
We run Fresh Science in every state where we can secure funding.
If you would like to partner with us on Fresh Science, please get in touch.
