Dr Adrian Wiegmans puts a spotlight on breast cancer research



Dr Adrian Wiegmans is a NBCF-funded researcher working at QIMR Berghofer in Queensland. Dr Wiegmans and his team are looking at designing new small molecule drugs to help treat metastatic breast cancer by targeting a particular gene that is over expressed in metastatic forms of breast cancer.

In this video, Adrian talks about his research, how it will help those with breast cancer, in particular metastatic breast cancer, and what could be achieved with more funding.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading community-funded organisation in Australia raising money for research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer.

Our aspirational goal is to achieve zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
