S1 - E1: Bringing equity and diversity to genomic medicine

For science to advance in big leaps, you need people who not only have a mind for the detail, but also the big picture, and the passion to make big things happen. We talk with a researcher who has big goals to bring equity and diversity into genomic medicine in Australia, something surprisingly inadequate presently. Professor Daniel MacArthur is Director of the Centre for Population Genomics, a joint initiative between the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, and the Murdoch Children's Research Institute (MCRI).

S1 - E2: New ways of treating breast cancer

Breast cancer is one of the most studied and high-profile cancers, and yet we still have so much to learn. While we have come such a long way and so many lives have been saved by advances in research, there’s still some breast cancers that are aggressive and don’t respond to treatment. Today we’re talking with Associate Professor Christine Chaffer who is determined to unravel how these cancers work.

S1 - E3: Curing cancer, from bench to bedside


Medical research sits at the intersection of the lab and the clinic. It's critical for translating breakthrough science into possible treatments for people. It's most successful when scientists and clinicians collaborate. Today, we're talking with Professor Anthony Joshua, one of Australia's leading oncologists and researchers, who is working to improve the treatment, survival and quality of life of cancer patients.
