Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre seminar: Brain cancer: The fourth dimension Event as iCalendar

14 March 2014

2 - 3pm

Venue: Seminar Room 503-024, Building 503, 85 Park Road, Grafton

How fast do brain cancer cells grow and how can you measure this? Do individual cancer cells from slowly growing brain tumours grow more slowly than those from rapidly growing ones? Are brain tumour cytokinetics (the balance of cell division and cell death) important for patient outcome and if so, why?

In collaboration with Chris Furneaux and other neurosurgeons, and with the help of brain cancer patients, we have investigated cultured surgical specimens from brain cancers to see if they can help to provide answers to these questions. Work on potential new therapies for brain cancer will also be discussed.

Presented by Professor Bruce Baguley
