Collaborate with us and combat a wide range of cancers

At UniSA, we are committed to a holistic and collaborative approach in our fight against cancer.

More than 300 researchers are working together to prevent and treat cancer and to support the growing numbers of survivors of this disease.

We strive to enhance personalised treatments, understand population health through big data, and reduce pain after cancer – among many other essential focus areas.

Often, one concept can be applied across many areas of research and many types of cancers. This translational research is powerful and ultimately means that even more people in our community will benefit from our scientists’ work.

When you donate to UniSA’s Cancer Research Fund today, 100% of your gift will go directly to the cause – helping those living with cancer, who have survived cancer, and all of us who are impacted by cancer.
