Cancer Council Queensland Funds $1.78 Million for Cancer Research

The $1.78 million fund by Cancer Council Queensland for research done to diagnose, treat and prevent cancer at the University of Queensland is a boon for the researchers.

Prof. Robyn Ward, UQ Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) and Vice President (Research) congratulated the successful research teams and thanked Cancer Council Queensland for its generous support.


Nine research projects designed to develop better ways to prevent, treat and diagnose acute myeloid leukaemias and cancers of the breast, ovaries, testicles, prostate, skin and brain will be benefited by the grants.

Professor Ward said, "As a clinical oncologist and bowel cancer researcher myself, I know how important these grants are to helping our scientists develop their ideas into outcomes that will improve the future health of Queenslanders. Cancer Council Queensland and its supporters have a proud history of investing in the state's leading cancer researchers, and we are delighted to count our researchers among them."

Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said, the organisation was proud to be funding ground-breaking research projects at The University of Queensland.

"It's crucial that we fund more research to discover better treatments for Queenslanders diagnosed with cancer. We are confident in the work of the University of Queensland and their contribution to clinical research, making a real difference to treatments and outcomes of Queenslanders diagnosed with cancer. Their research is world-leading and very promising. We look forward to seeing the results of these projects in the future," Clift said.
