Since 2011, Cancer Council SA has partnered with SA Health, SAHMRI and South Australian Universities to lead Cancer Council’s Beat Cancer Project.

Thanks to this collaboration, with the generous donations from the community and financial support of the State Government through the Department of Health and the Australian Government through the Medical Research Future Fund, in the past nine years we have contributed over $18 million towards ground-breaking research initiatives, including project grants, research fellowships, scholarships, as well as infrastructure and travel grants.

Research projects funded by the Cancer Council Beat Cancer Project cover a broad spectrum of cancer-related topics, from basic science and biomedical research, through to clinical, population health and health services research. This research is being conducted in some of the most common cancers affecting South Australians,  including bowel, breast and skin cancers.
