Young patients are using Virtual Reality goggles to experience what radiotherapy is like before they come to Peter Mac for treatment, as part of a ground-breaking trial funded by the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation.
Chief Executive Dale Fisher has announced that she will be leaving Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre to take on a national leadership role as CEO of Silver Chain, a leading home health and aged care provider.
An international clinical trial - led by Peter Mac’s Professor Michael MacManus - has shown that a combination therapy significantly improves long-term disease control for patients with localised, follicular lymphoma compared to radiotherapy alone. Follicular lymphoma is the most common type of low-grade lymphoma and it is a slow progressing disease, making clinical trials difficult to conduct.
The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre acknowledges the traditional
owners of the land on which our five sites are located throughout Victoria.
We recognise their strength and resilience and pay our respects
to their Elders past and present.
