Improving and changing lives through research; for women diagnosed with gynaecological cancer.
Each day in Australia, approximately 18 women are diagnosed with gynaecological cancer and five women die from the disease. One in 20 Australian women will develop a gynaecological cancer during her life. Gynaecological cancer affects women of all ages — mothers, wives, daughters and sisters alike. The Queensland Centre for Gynaecological Cancer Research (QCGC Research) is a research unit based at The University of Queensland. Its mission is to research and develop the best standard of care for women experiencing gynaecological cancer.
Through research, QCGC gives hope to women diagnosed with gynaecological cancer now and in the future.
Research is the key to learning more about gynaecological cancers so we can diagnose it earlier, treat it more effectively and eventually cure it.
