Highlights and Achievements

The New University of South Australia Cancer Research Institute is Now Open

The new University of South Australia Cancer Research Institute was officially opened by South Australian Premier Steven Marshall on Thursday, 10th May 2018. Premier Marshall, a University of South Australia Business graduate, told those gathered for the opening that it was important to believe that one day cancer would be beaten.

Located in Adelaide’s BioMed City in the Adelaide CBD, this $247 million building is home to cancer research for the Division of Health Sciences and the Centre for Cancer Biology, School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences teaching facilities, the Innovation Collaboration Centre, and the future-focussed public museum, MOD.

We are delighted to see the building open as our leading destination for a range of cancer-related research concentrations, including personalised medicine through the exploration of genomic sequencing, drug therapeutics, vaccine development, the early origins of diseases, nanomedicine and biopharmaceutical engineering, cell-biology and disease research, chemotherapy and bone growth and repair, cancer biomarkers, new drug discovery and development for cancer therapy, immunotherapy, gene regulation, and triggers for tumour development.
