Prevention and treatment of cancers

Cancer research at UniSA is focussed on reducing the burden of cancer and its progression. This includes prevention, diagnosis and the impact of cancer and its treatment on physical, psychosocial/spiritual and economic wellbeing.

Research looks broadly at how the cancer burden effects individuals and the society. Collaborators include the wider community, government, and non-government organisations.

You can support our brilliant teams by providing the resources to explore new ideas and develop new personalised means of preventing and treating cancer. When you give today, 100% of your donation will go directly to the researchers - with no admin fees or hidden costs.
