Clinical Research - Research at Peter Mac
|Clinical research at Peter Mac encompasses a broad and diverse portfolio of interest and expertise that complements our activities in the laboratory and translational arenas.|
|Divisional and tumour stream research|
|Based on the principle that cancer patients are best treated under the care of a multidisciplinary team focused on a particular type of cancer, Peter Mac has 11 ‘tumour streams’. The philosophy of these tumour streams is to provide|
integrated patient-focused care, based on evidence-derived treatment protocols, in a supportive and compassionate environment.
This clinical service model has led to a focus on research efforts along site-specific tumour lines. This scope 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.
Our clinical and translational research aims to drive the translation of our laboratory and clinical research into best clinical practice: to improve cancer survival, provide new diagnostic and treatment options, and reduce the impact of cancer on patients and their carers.
|Interdisciplinary research platforms|
|Across Peter Mac, there is a breadth of expertise and resources that form the foundations of our laboratory, clinical and translational research, facilitating and identifying new research directions and achievements.|
Complementing the core technology platforms of Peter Mac's laboratory research, our interdisciplinary research platforms are the foundation upon which clinical medicine is practised.
