TOGETHER THERE IS MORE WE CAN DO

UniSA’s Cancer Research Institute brings together over 350 leading biomedical, genetic and pharmacological experts located in the UniSA Cancer Research building on North Terrace. With so many minds at work, the effort is moving fast, and yet, for many cancer patients, it’s still not fast enough.

Although extraordinary advances have been made through groundbreaking research, cancer continues to exert an enormous toll. Without the development of new and better prevention, detection, diagnostics, and treatments, cancer is projected to increase exponentially in the future. Time is critical, and delays have a significant impact on survival outcomes. We need your help to be in a position where we can bring our world-leading discoveries and treatments to patients sooner so we can save lives faster.

Professor Shudong Wang

Determined to fight cancer

Professor of Pharmaceutical Science, Clive Prestidge leads a Nanomedicine and BioPharmaceutical Engineering research group, called The Prestidge Lab, at UniSA. For a researcher so active in the cancer treatment space, his own personal diagnosis has only made him more determined than ever to beat the disease.

Receiving the news that he had bowel cancer felt completely surreal. After what he expected to be a routine procedure at 5 pm on a Friday afternoon, Clive woke up to the news that a growth had been found that looked serious and that he was being referred to see a surgeon the following week.
