    Garvan Medical Institute: Invasion and Metastasis: targeting the spread of cancer using advanced imaging and nanotechnology (Pancreatic cancer). Metastatic cancer is one of the biggest challenges clinicians face in curing cancer due to spread, alteration in mutations and drug resistance. Our research focuses on the development of new technologies to markedly improve drug targeting (delivery) to solid tumours.
