The Centre for Cancer Biology (CCB) undertakes a world-class program of innovative research, making breakthrough discoveries in the fundamental causes of cancer, and translating these discoveries into new ways to prevent and treat this disease.
Established in partnership with SA Pathology and now embarking on a significant cooperative partnership with the University of South Australia, the CCB laboratories carry out research in the areas of gene regulation, molecular signaling, disease-specific research, translational oncology and cancer genomics.
In addition to the these laboratories the CCB has a Australian Cancer Research Foundation Genomics Facility providing access to state-of-the-art genomics research equipment, computing technology and bioinformatics expertise to the Centre for Cancer Biology.
Translation of new discoveries into clinical practice is strengthened by its proximity to the Royal Adelaide Hospital including its clinical resources, the University of South Australia and the University of Adelaide, with which it shares key research facilities.
The CCB also has alliances with leading pharmaceutical companies to rapidly exploit new discoveries. The Centre aims to be a hub of internationally recognized cancer research “excellence”, achieving tangible outcomes for cancer patients.
