Dr Kristopher Thurecht puts a spotlight on research and metastatic breast cancer

Dr Kristofer Thurecht from the University of Queensland has a Novel Concept Grant from the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Dr Thurecht and his team are looking at new imaging methods combined with nanotechnology that will help to target therapeutics solely on the tumour and decrease the damaging side effects on the rest of the body.

In this video Dr Thurecht talks about his research and why he works in this field. Kris says “I decided to work on breast cancer mainly because breast cancer effects almost everybody in Australia… and so as a scientist I’m driven to try to understand mechanisms, underlying mechanisms of the disease”.
