A cell penetrating peptide that enables delivery of functional molecules into cells that are otherwise not cell permeable

Combination of antibodies to be used to separate syncytial nuclear aggregates from maternal blood


Bioengineering technology to help locate breast tumours is set to change the way clinicians locate suspect tissue by bringing together all imaging techniques into a common 3D visualisation environment that will aid early detection of breast cancer.

Capturing endoscopy data -  new tool to help medical specialists. GastrOS is the first implementation of a Windows-based desktop clinical application using the recent state-of-the-art openEHR Electronic Health Record specifications. It essentially captures all clinical information during endoscopy and then generates a valid endoscopy report based on the terminology and recommendations set forth by the World Endoscopy  Association (OMED)

A PET-based imaging platform to monitor spatial and temporal distribution of biological vectors during cancer treatment.

Developing a first in class small molecule inhibitors of perforin, to develop novel therapeutics for a range of auto-immune and infectious diseases.

The Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre has developed 2-nitroimidazole agents for detection and/or imaging of hypoxia.

A novel DNA-binding compound with a novel dual mechanism of action and exceptional preclinical anti-tumour activity

An interactive gaming system that trains tinnitus sufferers to not hear the ringing in their ears
