    Developing personalised drug and genetic screening in glioblastoma

    "This project will provide new and innovative infrastructure that will permit, in a personalised manner, the rapid assessment of the malignant property of tissue invasion by brain cancer cells. By doing this, we can uncover the drugs that attenuate or completely inhibit this process as well as discover new genes (and potential therapeutic targets) that contribute to brain cancer cell invasion."
