Involvement in clinical trials

Through the trial of new treatments we give hope to patients today and into the future.

The Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute is embedded within a hospital to be able to offer clinical trials of new breakthrough treatments to patients with cancer. 

At any one time, our scientists are involved in up to 60 ongoing clinical trials. Trials are in progress for a variety of cancer types including brain, bowel, breast, melanoma, gastrointestinal, head and neck, pancreatic, prostate and lung cancer.

Experience in clinical trials

The scientists, clinicians and research colleagues of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute have been investigators on 180 clinical trials spanning "First time in human" investigations, through to multinational phase III trials.

Helping future generations

More than 1000 Austin Health patients have participated in these trials conducted by the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, furthering the field's understanding of how to detect and treat cancers of various origins.
