Focal adhesion biology

Our research aims to find new treatments for brain cancer and neuroblastoma, collectively the two most common solid tumours of childhood. We use the latest in cell biology techniques to understand the machinery that drives cancer cells to spread away from the primary tumour site (known as invasion and metastasis).

Understanding why cancer cells multiply and move around the body, will lead to new medicines that can specifically target invasive brain cancer and neuroblastoma.

Led by Associate Professor Geraldine O’Neill, the research group is part of the Brain Cancer Discovery Collaborative, which is committed to collectively investigate treatments and potential cures for cancer.
