Survival rates have barely changed in 30 years.
We recently held The Brain Cancer Centre’s inaugural National Conference. We’re so excited to have been able to bring our brain cancer community together to share our strategy and showcase our people.
Working together to create a brighter future for patients and their families.
The Brain Cancer Centre
To deliver our vision, we need both a sense of urgency to improve the outcomes for brain cancer patients now and a commitment to long-term research that will provide life-changing treatments for future generations.
To be successful, a radically different approach to brain cancer research in Australia is required.
We will develop a system that:
- has CRITICAL MASS, significant funding, researchers and momentum driving us towards our mission;
- is COMPREHENSIVE, spanning discovery, translational research, clinical trials, data and tissue banking, and quality-of-life research;
- is COLLABORATIVE, harnessing the expertise of
multidisciplinary teams of scientists (biologists, chemists,
mathematicians, computer scientists and technologists)
and clinicians (oncologists, surgeons, radiation
oncologists and immunotherapists);
- is COLLEGIAL, where up-and-coming researchers are
attracted into the field to be inspired and mentored by
experienced scientists; and
- is COMMITTED to long-term research underpinned by
