Pharmacophylogenomics: Developing phylogenies as predictive tools in drug discovery

The Project. Drug targets are proteins encoded in our genomes that can interact with drugs, triggering physiological responses. The pairing of targets and their targeting drugs is at the core of drug discovery and is accomplished with a combination of bioinformatics and biochemical approaches. Read more

Application of cryo-EM to understanding of GPCR structure, function and drug discovery - Drug Discovery Biology, Monash University (Australia)

GPCRs are among the most important therapeutic drug target classes. The existing technical advances in GPCR cryo-EM provide a robust template for the generation of novel structures that could be used to facilitate new drug design and development. Read more

Integrative data analysis: from novel biomarker-drug response associations to predicting effective drug combinations

  Research Group: Translational Tumour Biology
More than 140 children with cancer die in Australia each year due to the occurrence of resistance to traditional chemotherapy. To improve overall survival rates for high-risk paediatric cancer patients, the Children’s Cancer Institute initiated the Zero Childhood Cancer national personalised medicine trial (PRISM).

Explaining unexplained drug responses in childhood sarcomas

  Research Group: Translational Tumour Biology
Despite aggressive treatments, survival of young, high-risk sarcoma patients is poor and side-effects are frequent. No targeted treatment is available, underlining the unmet need for better and less toxic treatments. Read more

Endosomal Sorting Complex Required for Transport (ESCRT): Investigation of the role in acquired drug resistance in colon cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Despite treatment advances, one of the most common cancers, colorectal cancer (CRC), still has a 45% mortality rate, and one of the major problems is the build-up of resistance to cancer drugs during treatment (‘acquired resistance’) such that over time the drugs stop working. Read more

Microneedle devices for transdermal drug delivery and disease detection

The skin is a very effective barrier against substance exchange between our body and the external environment. This is necessary to ward off the invasion of pathogens but presents a significant challenge where effective drug absorption across the skin, or extraction of biological samples from the skin, is desired.
