Evidence, insight, impact.
The Viertel Centre for Research in Cancer Control (VCRCC), 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 VCRCC 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.
We invite you to read more about our research programs and to access the many statistical reports and publications produced by the VCRCC.
