Medical Genomics researcher awarded NHMRC Investigator Grant

Dr Olga Kondrashova from the Medical Genomics Lab at QIMR Berghofer has been awarded a $650,740 Investigator grant from the National Health and Medical Research Council.

Dr Kondrashova will use genomic technologies to study molecular portraits of cancers including ovarian and breast cancers with faulty DNA repair to better understand how to prevent drug resistance and treat each cancer most effectively.

This important work linking cancer genomics with patient treatment responses aims to improve cancer survival rates.

We are very grateful to the National Health and Medical Research Council for supporting our cancer genomics research initiatives.
