Brain cancer kills more children than any other disease

The Centre for Child and Adolescent Brain Cancer Research seeks to reduce chronic side effects of cancer and cancer treatment. We want to stop relapse and recurrence of brain cancer, and reduce the likelihood of a child developing secondary cancers. We want to find better ways to support sick children and their families throughout their cancer journey, including palliative care and bereavement care. Ultimately, we want to find a cure for this devastating childhood illness.

About the Centre

An Australian-first research centre brings together the ‘best of the best’ in paediatric brain cancer research to bring new hope to children and young people fighting this devastating disease.

Research projects

Led by a team of experienced researchers, these projects aim to double survival rates and improve the quality of life of people living with brain cancer over the next 10 years, while working to find a cure.

Our reason why

Brain cancer claims the life of one Australian child every 11 days – more than any other disease. Meet the inspirational children who are the very real faces of childhoood brain cancer.
