Research we fund

We fund more cancer research than any other non-government organisation in Australia.

Every year, we commit around $9 million in funding to support researchers. As a charity with limited funding, research experts, cancer patients, survivors and carers help us decide what research to fund.

Before we invest in any new research project, it is reviewed by both scientific experts and our panel of cancer survivors and carers. This allows us to make sure we fund research that is of most benefit to the cancer community while maintaining the highest scientific standards.

Our achievements

People with cancer continue to be more isolated than ever before. While most of us can now start to get out and about again, people with cancer can't. They need to continue to take extra precautions to stay safe.

Please donate what you can to help cancer patients get to life-saving treatment with Cancer Council's safe Transport to Treatment program.
