Cancer is the name given to a collection of related diseases. In all types of cancer the body’s cells begin to grow uncontrollably.

Our research makes a powerful contribution to improving the treatment and diagnostics for cancers across multiple areas. In particular, the altering of blood supply and prohibiting the cancerous cells from spreading to new parts of the body.

Some cancers now have effective treatments, but some of the most devastating are mostly untreatable, such as pancreatic, endometrial and brain cancer. A feature of these cancers is their link to our diet and metabolism.

We have many dedicated research projects that cover specific types of cancer with specific cancers. Centenary is currently looking at prostate cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer, melanoma, lung cancer and leukaemia.
