    Characterising acquired chemoresistance in ovarian cancer

    This study will allow for the investigation of novel therapeutic strategies to overcome resistance to chemotherapy. It will also allow for the development of a comprehensive biomarker panel to identify patients as they develop chemotherapy resistance and as such limit their exposure to chemotherapy when it will be ineffective.
