In the Personalised Oncology division clinicians and scientists are working together to reduce the impact of cancer in our community.

Our researchers use tumour samples and clinical data to better understand the characteristics of individual patients’ genetic make-up and the genetics of their cancer. We aim to use this insight to progress personalised strategies for the prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
