Evidence, insight, impact

“Public support is vital for the conduct of successful population health research and we are grateful to the community of Queensland for the trust they have placed in us.” Prof Joanne Aitken – Head of Research and Director of Cancer Registries, Cancer Council Queensland

The Viertel Cancer Research Centre, Cancer Council Queensland’s research department, conducts collaborative and multidisciplinary research targeted to areas of high need where results can be translated rapidly into effective programs to improve cancer outcomes. The research conducted by the Centre aims to improve our knowledge of the causes of cancer, help us prevent cancer, or help us diagnose cancer earlier to improve survival, and to better support cancer patients and their families. Our efforts contribute to the national research agenda, and we are formally accredited by the National Health and Medical Research Council.

 

Improving cancer outcomes in:

The research conducted within the centre enhances and builds on the knowledge available in cancer control today and provides us with the opportunity to translate our findings into effective, state-wide programs for cancer prevention, early detection and improved patient services for the people of Queensland and beyond. All program areas work together with the overall goal of improving cancer outcomes and reducing the burden of cancer on the individual and the community.
