Lead cancer research with foresight, to benefit society.

Director: Professor Ian Olver AM

Our researchers are dedicated to controlling cancer and its effects on quality of life. From discovering and developing new drugs, novel treatments and methods of detection and diagnosis, to improving prevention, screening, treatment and supportive care strategies, our evidence-based research translates into practice. Our outcomes consider the wider impact of cancer – not only on the individual, but also on the community which surrounds and supports them.
