WOOLCOCK CENTRE FOR LUNG CANCER RESEARCH & LUNG CANCER RESEARCH NETWORK
The Centre for Lung Cancer Research at the Woolcock Institute is Australia’s first centre dedicated to understanding and treating lung cancer, offering high-tech facilities to promote large translational research programs within the field.
PARTNERING FOR A CURE
The Woolcock Institute is home to the Lung Cancer Research Network, a team of world-class researchers from over 20 hospitals, research centres, universities and organisations who are united in the goal to better understand, treat and prevent this killer disease. The specialists come together to share data and launch large multidisciplinary projects to rapidly progress avenues of research.
The Centre’s data centre and bio-bank provide lung cancer researchers access to unprecedented quantities of valuable cells, de-identified patient information and fresh experimental results in the areas of molecular biology and drug discovery.
Lung Cancer Public Seminar
In late August 2017, a panel of researchers, advocates and lung cancer patients came together at the Woolcock Institute to raise awareness about lung cancer. Watch all or selected video clips of the seminar by clicking here.
