Cancer – clinical research and therapeutics

Melbourne's collaborative culture brings together hundreds of leading researchers and clinicians – locally and globally – focused on transforming cancer research and treatment.

Victoria is home to several significant centres and collaborations that bring together the best of cancer care, research and education:

Melbourne’s cancer research capabilities have been pivotal in the development of several new anti-cancer drugs such as AbbVie’s VENCLEXTA™, which was based on original research discoveries at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI). Together with AbbVie and Genentech, WEHI developed a drug development program, progressing to its first clinical trials being conducted at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
