Topic:  Our lab is undertaking a national Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG) approved study, investigating non-coding RNAs, including microRNAs (miR-), in malignant germ cell tumours and other childhood cancers. Our lab has a particular interest in circulating microRNA biomarkers, with a particular focus on germ cell tumours.
