Let's Cure Cancer Together

Cure Cancer Australia is dedicated entirely to funding early career researchers. 

We identify, assess and fund the research we believe has the best possible chance of finding a cure. Most importantly, we fund research for ALL cancer types and ALL areas of cancer research.

By the end of today, 330 Australians will have been told they have cancer. That’s one every four minutes. And by the end of this week, 820 Australians will have lost their lives from cancer*.

Currently, fewer than 1 in 5 research projects receive funding^. Australia boasts some of the smartest scientists and medical researchers,
and we know that these brilliant minds have the answers - and cures - if given the chance to do their work.

That’s why Cure Cancer Australia was founded almost 50 years ago and why today we’re more passionate than ever to play our part in ridding the world of all cancers.

Everyone can play a part in the fight against cancer.

We all need to work as a team, contributing what we can. 

There are many and varied faces of the Cure Cancer Australia collective team which includes cancer researchers, fundraisers, partners and our alumni to name a few.

Many of the collective team feature in the video above.
