  • Call for regulatory change to curb unethical, exploitative and potentially hazardous practices
    07 October 2016
    Australian clinics and businesses continue to offer unproven, costly, and potentially hazardous medical treatments that claim to use stem cells. There is an urgent need for more stringent regulatory oversight to protect the Australian public and overseas visitors from harm, and to ensure genuine efforts to translate promising stem cell research into clinical benefit are not stymied.
  • Breast cancer research achievements recognised by national award
