Leveraging collaboration in molecular pathology and skin cancer diagnostics

Leveraging collaboration in molecular pathology and skin cancer diagnostics

April 19, 2016

Trajan Scientific and Medical (Trajan) and the University of Melbourne have embarked on an investigative collaboration today in the fields of molecular pathology and skin cancer diagnostics.

Molecular testing techniques can be used to pursue more accurate cancer screening and disease diagnosis.

Trajan’s emerging tools in micro sampling, sample preparation and mass spectrometry interfaces have generated strong interest in these healthcare applications.

Eight Master of Biotechnology students from the University’s Faculty of Science will be undertaking two industry projects in these areas, with guidance from Trajan mentors Mr Paul Romeo, General Manager, Australia and New Zealand, and Mr Stephen Tomisich, Chief Executive Officer.

"We look forward to fresh insights from the teams, which will help shape Trajan’s roadmap for diagnostic technologies.” said Mr Tomisich.

Academic and industry partnerships are key to Trajan’s collaborative model for innovation, accelerating delivery of scientific and medical solutions to the market that will make a positive impact on human wellbeing.
