University of Canberra Cancer Research The Melanie Swan Memorial Translational Centre at the University of Canberra is leading the way in research into cancer treatment in the ACT. Professor Sudha Rao and her team are working to treat the occurence and spread of metastatic cancer - and they are on the cusp of a major breakthrough.  Professor Rao and her team are revolutionising cancer treatments by rethinking the way cancer is detected, tracked and treated.  Metastatic cancer is an aggressive, deadly secondary stage cancer that spreads throughout the body.

Currently, there is no cure. There are minimal treatment options for metastatic cancers such as melanoma, brain, lung, pancreatic, kidney and ovarian cancers. Professor Rao's team are increasing the options and survival rates for people with metastatic cancer.  The research and treatment breakthroughs at the University of Canberra will help change the way the world approaches cancer treatments.  Read more about the cancer research on our website.
