COVID-19: Everything you need to know about patient and visitor information.
Our four Alfred Cancer trials units are world-class. They oversee a comprehensive suite of cancer clinical trials from surgical studies to first-in-human trials of cutting edge therapies to large, Phase III studies that seek to advance standards of care in a range of malignancies.
Our portfolio is one of the largest in the country, giving patients all over Victoria access to potentially life-saving treatments.
Clinical trials are at the core of our patient care. They are essential to the discovery of new medicines and devices for a range of health conditions, and provide patients with access to new interventions.
In this video, our leading researchers talk about why clinical trials are so important.
Did you know that more than half of our 300 open trials are cancer-related trials?
Our cancer clinical trials have allowed us to put new and cutting-edge treatment into clinical practice. They have also enabled us to recruit highly-engaged staff who are always looking to improve the way we deliver care.
