Funds raised from this year’s event will go towards Dr. Geraldine M O’Neill’s research at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead entitled, “How can we stop brain cancer spreading?” The spread of glioblastoma brain tumour cells through healthy brain tissue is a leading cause of death from glioblastomas. This research aims to understand how one particular protein, NEDD9, allows the spreading cancer cells to sense the local environment and thereby pull themselves through the healthy brain tissue. This will help develop ways to stop cancers spreading, making them far less deadly.
