Australia has the highest rate of skin cancers in the world, and Allison has developed a new patented antibody-based therapy for their treatment. A Research Professor at the University of South Australia, Allison’s innovation comes from more than 20 years’ research in relating to the role of a specific protein called Flightless. She realised this protein could have an important role in cancer formation, progression and metastasis. This treatment is ready for clinical translation and commercialisation.
