Research and data
Cancer data, clinical trials, grants and research in NSW
The Cancer Institute NSW manages data registries and funds cancer research in NSW to inform and influence improved cancer outcomes across the state.
The Cancer Institute NSW collects and manages a significant amount of data about cancer incidence, outcomes, screening, trends and risk factors.
We use this information, working with our stakeholders, to influence change and make improvements across the cancer health system.
In particular, it enables us to direct funds where they are needed most. We are the largest funder of cancer research in NSW, providing grants, supporting clinical trials and investing in translational cancer research.
This support continues to turn innovative approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care into improved outcomes for people living with cancer.
