Cancer - Wesley Research Institute
Wesley Research Institute

Our independent research aims to find the most effective way to reduce the impact of cancer. Focusing on early detection, treatment, and care delivery, we will improve quality of life and inform diagnosis and treatment planning.

Cancer Research Objectives

Improve understanding

Our researchers are exploring new treatments for people with Melanoma by analysing bacteria in their microbiome. The MERIT-M Melanoma study aims to find new biomarkers to inform immunotherapy treatment for people affected by this type of cancer.

Increase quality of Life

By offering telehealth delivered exercise intervention to women with gynaecological cancer, the ACUMEN trial investigates the effectiveness of exercise on health-related quality of life. This research may enable exercise physiology to become affordable standard practice in cancer recovery care.

Better Technology

Pancreatic cancer is aggressive and has a poor prognosis when it is diagnosed at an advanced stage. The Pancreatic Cancer study aims to establish a useful imaging tracer for sensitive and specific imaging to aid diagnosis. This effective imaging option will better inform pancreatic cancer staging and subsequent treatment planning.
