Australia's Monash University have received a $2.97 million Medical Research Future Fund grant to commence a new DNA screening study that will identify cancer risk in young adults. The study will develop a low-cost test offered to 10,000 young Aussies with the aim to drastically improve access to preventative genetic testing. Associate Professor Paul Lacaze will work with a team of internationally recognised leaders to develop this tool and accelerate implementation into the healthcare system. | shorturl.at/kxAC5
