The VCCC Alliance is looking for workshop participants from across Australia for their patient-partnered research project.

Have your say on the brand of a new, national project that aims to shape the future of cancer research in Australia.

About the project

The research project looks to go beyond investigating a single cancer type, treatment strategy, or demographic. It uses a radically open model that can accelerate research across all cancers.

It brings together insights from DNA samples, medical records, and experiences of diagnosis and treatment to build a representative picture of the Australian cancer patient across all cancer types.

Who can participate?

Workshops are open to people with direct experience of cancer, including those who are currently undergoing cancer treatment, have completed cancer treatment and their friends and family.

All workshops will be held online, via Zoom. All feedback will be deidentified so that privacy is assured.
