Researcher looking in telescope

Research is the key to finding answers to our questions about cancer - what causes cell damage, why cells turn cancerous, how cancer grows and spreads and how we can most effectively attack it.

Cancer Council Australia and our members are the leading funders of independent cancer research and related activities in Australia, granting more than $54 million to cancer research, research scholarships and fellowships in 2013.

As well as research grants, a number of state and territory Cancer Councils operate epidemiological and behavioural research units that undertake research aimed at improving cancer prevention and detection.
