UQ research partnership | Using gold for early cancer diagnosis

Gold has a rich history in Australia and it also has a bright future. Researchers from the University of Queensland (UQ) have developed a breakthrough test using gold nanoparticles that can detect the presence of cancer cells anywhere in the human body. Evolution has committed to supporting this research through a three-year partnership and an offer to provide gold samples. This research will potentially enable early diagnosis for all cancer types. If cancer is caught early, survival rates can improve by up to 98 percent.
