My Research Supervision


Areas of supervision

Project: Understanding biology and outcomes of thyroid cancer

Discipline: Cancer Biology, Endocrine Surgery

Project level: Projects can be tailored to all levels

Supervisor: Dr Anthony Glover

Project commencement: Variable

Summary: The incidence of thyroid cancer has increased rapidly in the past few decades and is now the 7th most common cancer in Australian women. Thyroid cancer has a low mutation rate but a wide range of natural history from small cancers which can be observed to those which rapidly develop metastatic disease. Our group seeks to improve the knowledge of thyroid cancer biology using sequencing and to understand the clinical outcomes of thyroid cancer. Projects offer the opportunity to collaborate with the University of Sydney Endocrine Surgery Unit based at Royal North Shore Hospital which is the largest treatment centre for thyroid cancer in Australia.
