Drummoyne, New South Wales

Medical researcher

Darius is an early-career researcher at the University of Sydney. His research encompasses new ways to treat leukaemia and neuroblastoma, which account for 37 per cent of all childhood cancers. His AMP Tomorrow Fund grant is helping Darius to continue assessing Vitamin C’s role as an anti-cancer agent that acts on cancer cell iron metabolism: “There is so much good science out there that doesn’t go ahead because of a lack of funding. This grant will allow me to continue improving the quality of life for cancer patients through the development of novel and selective treatment strategies with fewer side effects.
