Clinical Research - Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre
|Clinical research at Peter Mac encompasses a broad and diverse portfolio of interest and expertise that complements our activities in the basic and translational arenas.|
|The scope of clinical research at Peter Mac is wide-ranging, from early phase clinical studies which allow our patients access to novel anti-cancer drugs to international randomised controlled trials designed to answer key clinical questions in cancer care.|
Three further developing areas in the clinical research portfolio, which cross all services, deserve particular mention. The first is the work underpinning the integration of functional imaging into all aspects of patient care, from management decisions and radiation treatment planning through to assessment of response, enabling rational tailoring of care to the individual. The latter area encompasses the technological advances optimising radiation treatment delivery, employing sophisticated on-line imaging and beam modulating techniques, and improving patient care by reducing the toxicity of curative treatments.
Finally the recognition that a cancer patient’s needs go beyond the physical has led Peter Mac to focus on the psychological and supportive care domains of clinical research, and the programs in these areas are burgeoning.
