Griffith University researchers have discovered a novel approach that could lead to the personalised design of anticancer drugs that resist metastasis (tumour spread) in triple-negative breast cancer. Traditional chemotherapy includes metal-based drugs like Cisplatin, commonly used to treat breast and ovarian cancers. However, many of these traditional chemotherapies have severe side effects and cancers treated […]
A community partnership between Griffith University’s Institute for Glycomics and Sanctuary Cove precinct has raised $31,299 during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to aid vital breast cancer research. A series of pink-themed events and promotions across the month of October were hosted by the Sanctuary Cove precinct to raise funds and awareness for the devastating disease, […]
Griffith University’s Institute for Glycomics is joining forces with the Sanctuary Cove precinct this October in a community partnership to raise funds to support vital breast cancer research.

The lights on Griffith's bridge across the Smith Street Motorway have turned a lovely shade of pink in support of the fight against breast cancer.
Patients with drug resistant forms of breast cancer and some forms of pancreatic cancer may have new hope, thanks to a new drug first developed at Griffith and now being trialled in the Czech Republic.

Breast cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the breast grow in an uncontrolled way. In 2009, breast cancer was the most common cancer in Australian women (excluding nonmelanoma skin cancer), […]
Studying the genetic variations that predispose individuals to breast cancer has been the fuel for study for Honours student Julian Fang from Arundel.
