Hospital-based medical research is growing in its value and strategic importance at a local, national and international level. Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre’s Research Strategy 2015-2020 describes how we govern research at Peter Mac, invest and prioritise research programs and work to attract and retain the very best talent in laboratory, translational and clinical research. Most importantly, it puts people impacted by cancer at the heart of everything we do.
Peter Mac is one of the world’s leading cancer research, education and treatment centres globally and is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to caring for people affected by cancer. We have over 2,500 staff, including more than 580 laboratory and clinical researchers, all focused on providing better treatments, better care and potential cures for cancer.
At Peter Mac we focus our services around our patients, their families and carers.
We provide information and support to empower them with a sense of control at every point in the cancer journey.
