Peter Mac’s commitment to research is based on the belief that treatment informed by research, and research informed by treatment, is the key to progressing better cancer care.

At the heart of everything we do are patients: from the laboratory to the clinic, over 520 laboratory scientists, clinician-researchers, research nurses and other health professionals are determined in their efforts to find better treatments and to improve patient care.

People with cancer are also able to contribute to Australia’s largest cancer research program, by sharing their thoughts, or donating blood or cancer tissue, to help improve outcomes for other people with cancer, everywhere.
