World-class researchers from some of Australia’s best universities and hospitals come together at the Centre for Lung Cancer Research to form the Lung Cancer Research Network.
The Network, made up of over 20 research teams, forms a multidisciplinary group of basic and applied researchers and clinicians, with more to join as the centre expands.
At this one-of-a kind facility, researchers can share results and innovate faster, advancing the field of lung cancer diagnosis and treatment as has never been seen before.
Our Network has one vision; to develop innovative solutions that will improve the healthcare outcomes and quality of life for people suffering with lung cancer.
The Lung Cancer Research Network is supported through the Woolcock Centre for Lung Cancer Research. This NSW State Health funded state-of-the-art-facility provides a research hub for network members, offers advanced data biobank storage and is a meeting place for our members. You can learn more about our Centre here.
These projects leverage the large Network of basic scientists and healthcare professionals working in the area of lung cancer and are broadly split into early diagnosis, therapy, improving quality of life and improving clinical care. These projects are classified as translational since we will rapidly translate findings and new discoveries to the clinic, to make a positive impact for those diagnosed with lung cancer.
Core translational projects:
The Network’s founding research teams have a proven track record in research and clinical excellence.
With this experience and reach, they’re perfectly placed to engage with patients, funders and industry to fuel desperately-needed growth in lung cancer research and lung cancer treatment.
