​Special seminar hosted by Associate Professor Ian Majewski

Raelene was awarded her PhD in 2003 from the Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research, undertook postdoctoral training in the Neurobiology and Brain Tumor Program at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital (USA) and was awarded a Fellowship in 2011 to return to Australia to establish the Brain Tumour Research Program at the Telethon Kids Institute.

This collaborative group of clinicians, neurosurgeons and laboratory scientists uses a suite of laboratory models to understand the effects of cancer-associated genetic on normal brain development and brain cancer development. Her team also investigates potential therapeutic targets and has developed unique research pipelines that enable the evaluation of novel treatments prior to clinical trial.
