Children’s Cancer Institute has been researching childhood cancer for more than 35 years and has become an internationally recognised leader in the field. Our science is world-class, and our research has made an important contribution towards improving science’s understanding of cancer in children. What’s more, we have a proven track record in research discoveries that directly impact on children’s treatment and survival.
From the very beginning, the Institute’s focus has been ‘bench to bedside’ research − research that will benefit children with cancer. We want our research to make a difference to these children and their families, and to offer hope for a brighter future. These children’s stories illustrate the devastating impact of childhood cancer and just how important hope can be.
