Centre for Cancer Biology

Centre for Cancer Biology

The Centre for Cancer Biology carries out a world-class program of innovative research, making breakthrough discoveries in the fundamental causes of cancer, and translating these discoveries into new ways to prevent and treat this disease.

Established in partnership with SA Pathology and now embarking on a significant cooperative partnership with the University of South Australia, our laboratories carry out research in the areas of gene regulation, molecular signalling, disease-specific research, translational oncology and cancer genomics.

Translation of new discoveries into clinical practice is strengthened by the co-localization of the laboratories within a single centre, as well as its proximity to the Royal Adelaide Hospital along with its clinical resources, the University of South Australia and the University of Adelaide, with which it shares key research facilities.

Principal research areas

  • Cancer research into fundamental causes of cancer
  • Translating these discoveries into new ways to prevent and treat this disease.
