We’re delighted to announce that Dr Arutha Kulasinghe is leading the Lung Cancer METASPATIAL Study that has been awarded nearly $1m by the Australian Government. The project is supported by the Wesley Research Institute and The University of Queensland.

The METASPATIAL Study will be undertaken over the next 4 years at Wesley Research Institute’s new Queensland Spatial Biology Centre (QSBC), with input from a wide range of experts across Australia. Dr Kulasinghe and his team will employ advanced spatial omics technology in their effort to revolutionise lung cancer understanding and treatment.

The Australian Government grant is part of a larger $229.46m initiative, aimed at supporting over 100 life-changing research projects addressing a wide spectrum of health challenges.

This initiative not only highlights the importance of collaborative funding in achieving significant research milestones but also places Wesley Research Institute at the heart of global efforts to combat serious health issues.

We’re grateful for the support from our partners and the Australian Government, reinforcing our dedication to making significant advancements in medical research.

Stay tuned for more updates as we progress with this pioneering venture.
