12 world-class cancer research projects helping us reach a cancer free future, sooner
By Cancer Council NSW
Each year Cancer Council NSW funds ground-breaking cancer research projects. Although these projects focus on different cancers, treatments, and research areas, they all have one thing in common – they’re helping us reach our vision of a cancer free future, sooner.
This year, thanks to the support of our incredible fundraisers and donors, we’ve been able to award more than $5.2 million in funding to 12 world-class cancer research projects.
These eminent and emerging cancer researchers are investigating new treatments and solutions to common treatment challenges. The projects span a range of cancers, including common cancers like breast and prostate, and rarer cancers such as childhood cancer.
Funding is awarded through an independent process with projects assessed on their scientific merit and potential impact for the community.
