MIA student honoured with NSW National Council of Women Australia Day Award
10 February 2017
Congratulations to PhD Student, Tuba Nur Gide who was awarded a NSW National Council of Women Australia Day Award for her PhD research work.
The ceremony was held at the NSW Parliament House on the 27th of January. Recipients and guests were invited for lunch and received the awards from NCW NSW Patron, Mrs Linda Hurley.
Under the supervision of Professor Georgina Long, Tuba’s research is focused on the role of immunotherapies in melanoma. While some patients exhibit a complete response to immunotherapy, others show little to no benefit and the mechanisms behind this are not yet well understood. Understanding these mechanisms will allow for the design of clinical trials of combinations of therapies that aim to convert the non-responders into responders, ultimately improving patient outcomes.
Innovation is helping to prevent melanoma developing in the first place.
Research from MIA is changing the way melanoma is managed worldwide and improving patient survival. Here are a few of our key highlights from this year.
A prestigious Fellowship has been awarded to fund research that will change the way melanoma treatment is assessed in the future.
New research from MIA has been published that forms the basis of the updated international guidelines for staging melanoma.
Professor William McCarthy AM has been awarded the Tom Reeve Award for Outstanding Contributions to Cancer Care.
Leading researchers from MIA have been acknowledged with three prestigious awards for excellence in melanoma research.
New research shows that patients who are more likely to respond to immunotherapy treatment have a greater diversity in their gut bacteria.
2018 will be bigger than ever, and a little bit different.
MIA's epidemiologist explains her new research on how country of residence should be considered when identifying melanoma risk.
Congratulations to our Conjoint Medical Directors, Professor Georgina Long and Professor Richard Scolyer, who have today been announced as Fellows of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences.
New research shows potentially deadly UV damage can appear decades earlier than you think.
Early lymph node check is saving lives in melanoma patients
We are pleased to announce that A/Prof Anne Cust is the new President of the Australasian Epidemiological Association.
More than $3.5 million in competitive funding grants have been awarded to MIA's researchers.
The ESMO conference provided a platform for announcing a number of key melanoma research findings - including practice-changing research from MIA.
Australian researchers have successfully trialled a combination of new treatments to prevent melanoma from spreading to distant organs.
A new treatment that combines an antibody with a cancer-killing virus improves outcomes for patients with advanced melanoma, an international clinical trial has shown.
It feels like groundhog day - another reality TV show, another batch of blatantly sunburnt contestants.
Wouldn’t it be great if your doctor could know if you would respond to treatment before you even had it?
