WHAT YOUR SUPPORT HAS ACHIEVED

Cervical cancer vaccine

We gave the initial seed funding to Professor Ian Frazer’s research into the development of a cervical cancer vaccine. The vaccine has now been administered to millions globally.

The pill that melts away cancer

ACRF’s long term support of cancer research at Walter & Eliza Hall Institute has seen the support of a revolutionary treatment that melts away certain advanced forms of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. This treatment is currently being trialled for the improved treatment of lung and prostate cancers.

A WORLD WITHOUT MELANOMA

ACRF’s major grant of 2018 supported the ACRF Australian Centre of Excellence in Melanoma Imaging and Diagnosis (ACEMID). The project supporting the vision of a ‘World without melanoma’ is aiming to be one the largest melanoma surveillance and early detection programs in the world.

Zero childhood cancer

The program name is also the aim. Focusing on children across Australia diagnosed with the most high-risk cancers, this world-first personalised medicine program already has very 300 children enrolled. The ultimate aim of the program is to see zero deaths from childhood cancer.
