This project, Centre for Personalised Analysis of Cancers (CPAC), aims to improve patient care by optimising cancer treatments—bringing the right treatment to the right person at the right time.
Under this inter-disciplinary program, clinicians will also be trained in translational research and the project will further engage with and advocate for patients living with tumours.
The project objectives include:
The program focuses on 11 cancer types: bladder, bowel, brain, breast, endometrial, ovarian, head and neck squamous cell carcinomas, leukaemia, lung, melanoma and prostate.
Partner organisations include Metro North Health, Metro South Health, Mater Health, The University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology (QUT), QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute and the Translational Research Institute.
Project investigators engage with and draw up on the expertise of partners within universities, research institutes, and hospital and health services around Queensland.
