Organiser

The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre - Cancer Research Division

Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre is one of a handful of integrated cancer research, treatment and education centres in the world. This is a place where normal days are extraordinary – as are the people we care for.

Each day our team strives to provide the very best in cancer care, better treatments and potential cures for all people affected by cancer.

Globally, we are facing one of the most pivotal times in the pursuit of cancer cures, and Peter Mac stands at its forefront. Together, we aim to lead a new era of cancer prevention, care and discovery, supported by state-of-the-art facilities at our new home within the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre building, which we will relocate to in June 2016.

In the words of our founder, Sir Peter MacCallum: “nothing but the best is good enough in the treatment of cancer.”

65+ years after our establishment, this sense of purpose and commitment to making life better for people affected by cancer continues at our centre today.
