UNSW and Cancer Council NSW establish Australian Research Centre for Cancer Survivorship

A new research centre focused on improving the care and wellbeing of cancer survivors will be established as part of a new 10-year partnership between UNSW Sydney and Cancer Council NSW (CCNSW).

The launch of the Australian Research Centre for Cancer Survivorship is the first of its type focused entirely on transforming the lives of cancer survivors through an evidence-based approach and world-class researchers.

Created through a joint investment of $40 million from UNSW and Cancer Council NSW, the centre will leverage the expertise of each organisation as well as building new capacity to drive research, education and advocacy in cancer survivorship. Critically, the centre will partner with consumers and industry to address critical issues for cancer survivors. A major focus of the work will be breaking down barriers to access in regional and rural settings and greater engagement with primary care.
