New cancer innovation centre opens
The new Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer has opened, incorporating the LIVESTRONG Cancer Research Centre and the ACRF Cancer Prevention Unit.
“The work in the LIVESTRONG research wing of this integrated centre will focus on innovation in the early diagnosis, prevention and treatment of cancer,” South Australian Minister for Health and Ageing John Hill said.
The South Australian Government has committed $7.5 million to a project, with a further $5 million in recurrent funding to support research and other work.
The Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer is a joint venture between the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation, the Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University.
“The Centre’s work ties in with South Australia’s strategic commitment to high-level research and the translation of advances in knowledge and technology into better prevention and treatment,” Minister Hill said.
