Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute

The Newton-John Cancer Research Institute is embedded within the ONJ Centre. Researchers work just metres from where people are receiving treatment. This ensures that scientific discoveries are rapidly translated into breakthrough treatments for our patients. The Institute focuses on finding treatments for cancers of the breast, bowel and gastrointestinal tract, lung, skin, prostate, liver and brain. They also research rare cancers.
