New technology and data mining strategies mean it is now possible to paint a clear picture of the genetic profiles of tumours. This means cancers can be more accurately classified and treatments tailored to patients’ unique needs.

Dan is head of the Tumour Bank and one of the founding members of the Australian Biospecimens Network. He established microarray technology within the Children's Cancer Research Unit and continues to advance e-medicine approaches in cancer research and treatment.
