MQ Health - Macquarie University

Brain cancer

Other research within MQ Health seeks to understand the causes of and develop improved treatments for brain cancers, particularly glioblastoma. For example, some of our researchers are exploring how immune system imbalances lead to tumour growth in the brain, in order to identify novel therapeutic strategies for these devastating cancers.

In more clinically directed research, neurosurgeons and radiologists within MQ Health are exploring clinical questions associated with precisely locating and then surgically removing brain cancers and metastases to ensure best outcomes for patients.
