$38.4M NHMRC program grants extend cancer and blood cell research
Date:3/8/2011

thin the bulk tumour will require development of novel therapies that target them."

The institute will also be leading a $17.1 million program to further studies of the molecular processes that regulate blood cell production and function. Scientists from the Cancer and Haematology, Molecular Medicine and Inflammation divisions will be collaborating on the project, led by Professor Nic Nicola, head of the institute's Cancer and Haematology division.

"The blood-forming system performs an intricately controlled balance of cell proliferation, maturation and functional activity that is essential for oxygen transport throughout the body, blood clotting, and effective immune responses," Professor Nicola said.

"Defining the genes and molecules that orchestrate blood cell production and function is crucial, not only for understanding the role of blood in health, but for establishing the basis of blood cell disorders and for devising new clinical strategies for fighting these lethal diseases, including leukaemia and autoimmune and inflammatory disorders."

Institute director Professor Doug Hilton said the NHMRC's program grants scheme provided vital support for Australian researchers to tackle complex but important research questions that might take many years to unravel.

"The program grants scheme is recognition that if Australian scientists are to continue to make discoveries that benefit human health they require sustained and significant support that brings together large research teams from diverse areas of medical research."
