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 Network links researchers with clinicians and health care providers across five core areas: patient interface, mechanism of disease, drug discovery, modelling disease/drug evaluation, and drug delivery and technology. This unique approach allows for a truly translational path to treating lung cancer, since each arm can provide scientific input, material and knowledge that support research in the other arms. Excitingly, this collaborative environment allows for an almost unlimited number of ‘multi- disciplinary’ 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.
The Lung Cancer Research Network brings together researchers from Medical Research Institutes, Universities and the Healthcare sector with a common goal for studying and treating lung cancers. Partners of the network are listed below.
