A device that identifies the best treatment for cancer

Team ‘ALTEN’ won first prize in the UNSW Peter Farrell Cup this yearfor creating a medical device that helps doctors provide the best healthcare for cancer patients. 

Their device addresses a major problem oncologists face in knowing whether a cancer treatment will work in a patient. They help by testing multiple treatments on a biopsy simultaneously so oncologists can identify the best option within two weeks.”

A patent cooperation treaty has been signed with the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and an early stage trial is due to start later this year to validate ALTEN’s clinical application.
