A big congratulations to our PhD student Tom Johnson (pictured far left) who was the runner-up at the recent University of Sydney Faculty of Medicine and Health (FMH) three-minute thesis final. He will be representing FMH in the University of Sydney Final on 20 August, 2019.

Tom’ talk: Patients suffering mesothelioma are afforded some of the worst survival rates of all cancer types, largely attributed to the very limited treatment options currently available. Throughout this project we have found a gene that is involved in key characteristics of mesothelioma cells and will hopefully become a therapeutic target in patients down the line.
