Brain cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related death in children. The Wainwright laboratory discovered the first gene known to cause brain tumours in children and since that time has been focused on using genetic/genomic and developmental biology approaches to understand the genesis of paediatric brain tumours and develop new therapies. The Children's Brain Cancer Initiative based at UQDI is a collaboration between multiple Universities and Research Institutes, and the Queensland Children's Hospital. As part of this Initiative we have PhD scholarships for suitably qualified applicants.
