Investing in cancer research is central to our mission - to eliminate cancer and diminish suffering from cancer.
Our research activities encompass a number of areas which work together in supporting our commitment to reduce the burden of cancer.
Our research is directed at understanding how to prevent cancer, how to diagnose cancer earlier, how to help patients achieve the best possible quality of life after a cancer diagnosis, and how to best support cancer patients and their families.
Viertel Centre for Research in Cancer Control (VCRCC) - a centre of research excellence which conducts research and translates research findings into quality advocacy, education and supportive care programs that improve cancer outcomes for Queenslanders and the wider community

This information is used in our research programs and the cancer statistics are made readily accessible through Queensland cancer statistics
Queensland cancer statistics - readily accessible cancer statistics
Research funded by Cancer Council Queensland - in addition to conducting our own research through the VCRCC, we also invest in external research projects
Cancer research project grants - we support research on all aspects of cancer
