Ovarian cancer has one of the lowest survival rates of any cancer in Australia and, unlike many other cancers, survival has only slightly improved in recent decades. This multidisciplinary stream of research is supported by key collaborators and advisors from across the Daffodil Centre, including Professor Anna DeFazio, Professor Karen Canfell, Dr Michael Caruana, Dr Kirstie McLoughlin, Associate Professor Carolyn Nickson and Associate Professor Natalie Taylor.

This work is made possible by funding from the Fussell Family Foundation.
