An Australia and New Zealand Melanoma Trials Group (ANZMTG) clinical trial led by Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre investigators that aims to develop a novel treatment combination for a rare neuroendocrine cancer has received $AU1.8m funding from the Medical Research Future Fund.
Peter Mac’s Professor Joe Trapani, has been appointed head of a major new laboratory focused on immunotherapy. Prof Trapani is Director of the new Centre for Cancer Immunotherapy, which is a partnership between Peter Mac, the VCCC and University of Melbourne and is scheduled to open later this year.
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.
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.
