Research Australia INSPIRE Magazine Winter 2016 Edition features an article on innovative research being conducted within The University of Queensland.
This research, led by UQ's Professor H. Peter Soyer, is unique in it's focus on moles (or naevi) and recently received 5 years of funding from the NHMRC for a Centre of Research Excellence for the Study of Naevi.
This collaborative research initiative will investigate why some moles turn into deadly cancers and others don't. The aim is to improve the understanding of naevus development and transformation, along with recognition of the associated changes, to better prevent, predict and detect skin cancer and melanoma.
