Research is fundamental to unlocking the answers that will help us beat cancer. Over the past 10 years, Cancer Council NSW has contributed over $136 million into research – supporting the best ideas and the best people in research. Cancer Council NSW is committed to conducting and funding research that enhances outcomes across the entire cancer journey – investigating the causes of cancer; preventing, detecting and treating cancer; and supporting people as they adjust to life after a cancer diagnosis.
