The University of South Australia (UniSA) is committed to tackling one of our most challenging diseases – Cancer – by establishing the largest cohort of cancer researchers ever assembled in South Australia.
With a focus on personalised precision treatments, better diagnostics, prevention and survivorship, the University has created a central cancer research hub housing over 300 leading biomedical, genetic and pharmacological cancer researchers in the new $247million UniSA Cancer Research Institute building on North Terrace.
This research, when combined with the work of UniSA research specialists in nanotechnology, radiobiology, drug engineering, psychology and allied health from UniSA’s three other campuses (Mawson Lakes, Magill and City East), creates a groundswell of expertise unsurpassed in the State.
Every day our experts are getting one-step closer to saving more lives as well as improving the quality of life for cancer survivors. But they need your help.
When you give today, 100% of your donation will go directly to the researchers - with no admin fees or hidden costs.
