Cancer Council SA has welcomed a Federal Government announcement which will see $3million invested into Cancer Council’s Beat Cancer Project, a flagship research collaboration between Cancer Council SA, the State Government, SAHMRI and the Universities.
Cancer Council SA Chief Executive Lincoln Size said that the funding will enable Cancer Council’s Beat Cancer Project to continue to fund the state’s best and brightest researchers to work towards a cancer free future.
“Since 2011, Cancer Council SA has partnered with SA Health, SAHMRI and the SA Universities to fund the Beat Cancer Project.”
“Thanks to this collaboration and the generous donations from the community, in the past eight years we have been able to contribute over $15 million towards ground-breaking research initiatives across a wide range of cancers and a broad spectrum of cancer related topics.”
“This funding will enable Cancer Council’s Beat Cancer Project to continue to lead the way in research investment in our state, ensuring that the South Australia’s best and brightest cancer researchers are provided with a continuity of funding that will enable them to work towards the next breakthrough.”
“We thank the Federal Government for their support and know that through this funding, our Beat Cancer Project researchers will be able to continue their life-changing work which will improve the lives of all those impacted by cancer, not only in South Australia but across the country.”
