Cancer Research

The NSW government, through Cancer Institute NSW is one of the largest funders of cancer research in NSW. We support cancer clinical trials by providing funding and strategic support to Local Health Districts, Specialty Networks and private institutes to undertake clinical trials. 

We invest in the next generation of cancer researchers so that NSW continues to be the home of world-class cancer research. Our translational cancer research funding supports multi-disciplinary research teams to rapidly translate cancer research into improving outcomes that matter.

Research that changes lives takes time 

The development and implementation of treatments to improve cancer care take time. Research involves many stages that form a critical path which may take many years to translate into clinical practice.

The Cancer Institute NSW is committed to continuing its investment in research development and innovation that will provide future benefit in reducing the burden of cancer in NSW.
