Finding a needle in the haystack: ctDNA detection for tracking cancer evolution and refining cancer risk Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) Clinical Pathology This project will explore the correlation between ctDNA and somatic mutation status derived from formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue. This will involve micro-dissecting normal colonic epithelium and tumour region that will then be profiled using next generation sequencing techniques. The project will also explore the correlation between immune indices determined from the blood and the quantity of ctDNA.

Heterogeneity of treatment response in advanced cancer: role of intrinsic and microenvironmental factors Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) Clinical Pathology This project aims to identify and characterise the contribution of tumour-intrinsic and microenvironmental factors in driving the drug resistance of aggressive cancer cell subsets. The project uses tumour organoids derived from colorectal and pancreatic cancer patients. AProfessor Frederic Hollande frederic.hollande@unimelb.edu.au n/a PhD students; Masters by Research
