Australia is the melanoma capital of the world.
The laboratory head, Professor Brown, runs the Royal Adelaide Hospital Cancer Clinical Trials Unit and is a senior consultant medical oncologist in the Royal Adelaide Hospital Cancer Centre. He subspecialises in the care of patients with advanced melanoma or lung cancer.
His clinical research is focused mainly on facilitating rapid access to new targeted therapies and on early phase clinical trials for testing new immunotherapies for the treatment of melanoma and lung cancer. His laboratory research is focused mainly on understanding better how to direct T cells, the ‘generals’ of the immune system, toward cancer targets.
