Children’s Cancer Institute

WHO WE ARE

We are the only independent medical research institute in the country devoted to research into the causes, prevention and cure of childhood cancer. Throughout our existence, our vision has remained unchanged – to save the lives of all children with cancer and to eliminate their suffering.

WHAT WE DO

Our focus is on translational research, making sure our discoveries are progressed into actual treatments for kids with cancer as quickly as possible.

WHY WE DO IT

As the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to childhood cancer, our role is vital. Because, despite our progress, cancer still kills more children than any other disease. Nearly three children in Australia are still dying from cancer every week. We believe this is three too many.
