Research Opportunities & Grants

Peer-assessed research has led to major advances in our knowledge about cancer and this knowledge has led to improved treatments for cancer. Research also identifies treatments with fewer side effects and leads to more sophisticated early detection methods, which often means better patient outcomes.

At the beginning of each year, Cancer Council Tasmania allocates funds received from public donations to a wide range of cutting edge cancer research in Tasmania. For nearly 20 years, Cancer Council Tasmania has allocated nearly $5 million to cancer research in this state thanks to the generous support of the Tasmanian community. All research is assessed by experts in the field to ensure that projects with the best chance of success are supported.
