Forensic techniques enable study of cancer cells from archives

Dr Luciano Martelotto
A new technique that enables researchers to study single cells from older samples taken from people with breast cancer is opening the door to new findings about genetic changes that make cancer aggressive.

Published last week in Nature Medicine, the research was led by Dr Luciano Martelotto, who has recently moved to the School of Clinical Sciences, Monash University as a Senior Research Fellow.

Dr Martelotto is currently working with Associate Professors Arun Azad and Jake Shortt in the development of a high sensitivity next-generation sequencing pipeline for circulating cell-free DNA in prostate cancer and lymphoma.
