This week on Wellbeing we are talking with Dr Heather Murray from the University of Newcastle about Leukaemia. Leukaemia is a blood cancer that most often occurs in those over 55, with estimates suggesting that 5,200 new cases in Australia were diagnosed in 2022. Dr Murray has established herself as a competent researcher, having discovered components of acute myeloid leukaemia that could lead to more effective treatments. 

In this episode, Dr Murray talks about what leukaemia is, its symptoms, how and why it occurs, the impact chemotherapy has on the body, the emerging treatments for leukaemia, the age groups affected, the cancer research sector, the economic benefits of cancer research, and the biological underpinnings of leukaemia. 

"We can cure some leukaemias, there are some subtypes of leukaemia that are mostly curable." - Dr Heather Murray on this episode of Wellbeing
