WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
To fund Australia’s brightest and most innovative medical researchers and clinicians in their efforts to provide all cancer patients with ‘precision’ cancer treatments and to help create access to new techniques and integrated comprehensive data for medical researchers and physicians.
To ensure precision treatment for ALL new cancer patients, whatever the cancer, regardless of location, age, income or status. It is our vision that patients are offered the right treatment, first time, every time. And that, at the cusp of a post-genome revolution, Australia can show the world how precision medicine is done.
What is 'precision' medicine?
Every cancer is different for every body. Precision Medicine, using current, widely available technologies, offers the tantalising prospect of analysing a tissue sample and treating cancer with the right drug, first time, every time. This increases positive treatment outcomes, decreases treatment times and saves countless millions on ineffective treatments. The data from each sample also helps us further map cancer genetically.
