Telomere Length Regulation Group Children's Medical Research Institute
Lab head: A/Prof. Hilda Pickett
Location: Children's Medical Research Institute, Westmead
Telomeres regulate the lifespan of normal human cells, but become dysregulated in cancer cells. Our group is investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying telomere length control, and how these processes contribute to cancer.
A current list of A/Prof Pickett’s publications can be found on her Sydney Medical School profile page.
