Engaging the World – Macquarie University Profile

Dharmica’s profile in the Macquarie University Magazine titled Engaging the world

“My research at Macquarie – and now my work at BCAL Diagnostics – involved detecting and characterising novel biomarkers in blood and hair that can be used as the basis for a blood test for breast cancer. Whilst mammography is the gold standard in screening for the disease, it has a number of limitations. BCAL Diagnostics’ technology could utilise a single blood test to monitor younger women with a predisposition for breast cancer, right through to screening, diagnosis and monitoring during and post treatment. This will allow doctors to identify the disease earlier and to treat it, ultimately saving more lives and improving quality of life.”
