Research into the development of an early detection test for ovarian cancer at Griffith University’s Institute for Glycomics has been given a $300,000 funding boost from The Bourne Foundation and a further significant funding pledge from Tour de Cure. “Despite decades of research, there is currently no easily accessible, non-invasive and reliable early detection test […]
Griffith University research has found that sugars decorating human cells allow toxins, produced by disease-causing bacteria, to bind to human cells and cause damage or death.
Researchers from the Institute for Glycomics and the University of Adelaide, have entered into an exclusive licensing deal with Sienna Cancer Diagnostics Ltd to commercialise a novel cancer diagnostic tool. Together, the teams of researchers have engineered a unique protein, called SubB2M, that binds specifically to a sugar molecule only present in cancer cells – a potential […]
