APCRC-Q Research Shines at IHBI Gala Dinner

APCRC-Q PhD student Ms Nataly Stylianou was one of seven Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) speakers invited to present their research at the IHBI Gala Dinner on Thursday 25 September.

Ms Stylianou’s presentation showcased her research into finding new therapies to block prostate cancer from spreading to other parts of the body (metastasis).

Ms Stylianou explained that her research involved developing cellular models which will facilitate investigation into cancer metastasis. From the study of this process she hopes to identify critical therapeutic targets that could be used to develop better targeted therapies against prostate cancer metastasis.

 The IHBI Gala Dinner is an annual event celebrating IHBI researchers’ contributions towards creating a healthier Australia. This year the Dinner featured a keynote address from Queensland Minister for Health, the Hon Lawrence Springborg MP.  Other dignitaries joining the celebration included QUT Chancellor Tim Fairfax AM, and QUT Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Coaldrake AO.
