Dr Philip Gregory – Breast Cancer Research
Research Fellow, National Breast Cancer Foundation, SA Pathology.
Philip’s research addresses the leading cause of death for sufferers of breast cancer – the spread of cancer cells from the initial tumour to other organs. He studies the transformation of cancerous cells into the even more aggressive cells which are able to spread throughout the body. Discovering the genetic reasons for this fatal transformation will allow Philip to develop therapies to target and prevent these changes and lead to better diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
