Disease Map

The smart use of information to improve, promote and maintain good healthcare is a critical mission for our country. Cancer is a serious problem in Australian society and 1 in 4 individuals will be affected by it in their lifetime. Our research is focussed on two types of cancer - lung cancer and the lymphomas - and it will use IT in a novel way to extract important information from a very large biomedical data repository. We hope that it will improve personalised diagnosis and treatment in these cancers and provide new information on how some cancers spread and resist our usual treatments. We think our techniques will contribute to other research areas such as astronomy, agriculture, water/energy resources, and security.
