New cancer research priorities give hope for childhood cancers of low survival

Date posted: 7 March 2018

Cancer Australia has released a new set of research priorities focusing on improving outcomes for childhood cancers of low survival. The new priorities were announced as Cancer Australia called for applications to the 2018 round of the Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS).

CEO of Cancer Australia, Helen Zorbas said, 'Cancer research focusing on populations who experience unwarranted variations and poorer cancer outcomes is strongly encouraged. This includes variations by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander status, socioeconomic status and geographic location'.

Applications for the PdCCRS close Wednesday 14 March 2018.
