Fostering research translation

Icon of DNA strand indicating fostering translation and innovation in cancer research.The NSW Cancer Plan aims to foster translation and innovation in cancer research.


Building greater collaboration between researchers and clinicians, and implementing new research, brings new and exciting prospects for people with cancer.

Expanding access to cancer-relevant data will create more opportunities for collaboration and innovation, and greater knowledge sharing within the cancer research community.

Greater translation of cancer research outcomes into clinical practice so that new innovations can reach people with cancer sooner.

NSW Cancer Plan actions

  • Further developing models to optimise the translation of cancer research into clinical practice.
  • Expanding access to, and use of, cancer-relevant data.
