Since 2011, Cancer Council SA and SA Health have come together to invest more than $35 million dollars into cancer research through the
Cancer Council Beat Cancer Project.
This collaboration has the support of the three major South Australian Universities, alongside SAHMRI and SA Health, and is one of a kind in Australia.
The Cancer Council Beat Cancer Project remains the single biggest source of cancer research funding in the state outside of the Federal Government.
- For every dollar raised since 2011, over $6 has been invested into local, life-saving cancer research activities.
- In the past year, together with SA Health, Cancer Council SA invested $2 million into cancer research through the Cancer Council Beat Cancer Project.
- Cancer Council SA’s Behavioural Research Team took part in more than 20 research and evaluation projects.
