Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to cancer and one of an elite group of hospitals worldwide to have its own integrated cancer research program and laboratories.
Peter Mac’s mission is to minimise the impact of cancer on its patients and the community.
Our model of treating patients with cancer is to tailor treatment to the patient. Multi-disciplinary teams, who are specialists in a tumour type, develop comprehensive and coordinated treatment plans, ensuring our patients get treatment and a team tailored to their individual needs.
As the largest cancer research site in Australia, with researchers and clinicians working side-by-side, Peter Mac has made significant contributions to basic research, translational research and clinical trials, informing advances in cancer diagnosis and treatment.
