“Cancer originates at the microscopic level in single cells that divide, multiply and spread in 3D over time to form tumours. This new microscope will allow us to observe cancer growth and development in high resolution and monitor responses to novel treatments. As the first system of its kind in Australia, this microscope will support research teams focussed on defeating cancer and translating cancer discoveries into clinical solutions across the Westmead precinct and the University of Sydney.”

“We are thrilled to be in a position to acquire the first of this model in Australia, which will provide novel and cutting-edge capability in confocal, lightsheet, high resolution and live-cell microscopy to enhance research across multiple cancer streams”

The microscope will be located at the multi-user Westmead Imaging facility at the Westmead Research Hub and will be made available to cancer researchers from across Sydney Cancer Partners, placing our teams at the forefront of translational cancer research.

Congratulations to Professor George and the team of investigators on your grant success!
