Immune detection and eradication or control of cancer and cancer immunotherapies are based in part on the idea that tumour-specific white blood cells can protect the body from tumour development, growth and metastases. While strong evidence supports this, the means by which these white cells first recognize the cancerous tissue is largely unknown. We are studying a new family of white blood cell receptors that may be important in this recognition, either naturally or following therapy.

“All Australians benefit from the advances in science and the best way to share the gains of our world-class scientists is to encourage stronger links between science and business,” Mr Macfarlane said. "The new prize, the Prime Minister’s Prize for the Commercial Application of Science, will promote building better links between researchers and industry and encourage entrepreneurship in our business and research communities."
|Dr Neil Bailey's 'Thinkable Open|
Innovation Award' video entry.
Dr Neil Bailey, based at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry research centre, researches how techniques of mindfulness (or meditation) change our brain to prevent or ameliorate mental illness. Recent research has shown that the brain's grey matter is diminished in psychiatric disorders, and conserved or even augmented with mindfulness practice. Neil describes in this video the particular aspect his research is investigating.
