The ACRF staff took a tour of the Drug Discovery Centre at the Children's Cancer Institute Australia. The robots featured in this video are the only two of their kind in Australia dedicated to cancer research. They work to dramatically accelerate the search for cures into all types of cancer. #cancerresearch #cancertreatment #fightcancer http://www.acrf.com.au/
Researchers at the ACRF Drug Discovery Centre, located in the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia (CCIA), are now screening the most promising drugs in the treatment for childhood and adult cancers with a one of a kind robot funded by the ACRF. #cancerresearch #researchgrants #cancer
The Drug Discovery Centre came about as a result of a 3.1 million dollar grant awarded to Children’s Cancer Institute Australia by the ACRF for the purpose of purchasing the necessary equipment for the Centre. The funds were used to secure the integrated robotics, chemical compound library and additional capital items related to target identification and validation and cell biology. www.acrf.com.au/ #cancer #cancerresearch #researchgrants #fightcancer
Researchers from Children's Cancer Institute Australia (CCIA) focus on drug screening to develop new, better and targeted drugs for childhood cancer at the ACRF Drug Discovery Centre. These drugs will just target cancer cells, whilst keeping the healthy cells alive - causing less side effects in kids with cancer. #cancerresearch #fightcancer #innovations
Flashes of Hope is a nonprofit organization that changes the way children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses see themselves through the gift of photography and raises money for pediatric cancer research.
Very inspiring video: Just one month after being diagnosed with leukemia, Chris Rumble decided to lift the spirits of fellow cancer patients at Seattle Children's Hospital with a little music. The 22-year-old put his filmmaking skills to work and organized a video set to the tune of Kelly Clarkson's hit song "Stronger" to give children, teens, families and staff on his floor a little bit of motivation -- and a reason to sing at the top of their lungs.
Researchers at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI) Melbourne have played a key role in developing a novel chemical compound which blocks a protein that has been linked to poor treatment responses in cancer patients. #fightcancer #hope #cancernews The development of this compound is an important step towards designing a potential new anti-cancer agent, which will help to significantly reduce resistance to therapy.
