Don't miss this great opportunity to visit our research laboratories

You are invited to a FREE behind-the-scenes look at our cancer immunology labs to celebrate the annual Day of Immunology. Hear from passionate researchers, see the facilities where discoveries happen and learn about cancer and immunology. 

At the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, our priority is to outsmart cancer. Our vision is to help people live better with cancer and defeat it. Our mission is to discover and develop breakthrough cancer therapies to provide the best health outcomes for patients. We do this by discovering and developing new cancer therapies to provide real and life changing benefits for people impacted by cancer. 

With researchers based just metres from where people are receiving treatment, our scientific discoveries are rapidly translated into breakthrough clinical therapies. Our four core research programs focus on developing treatments for a range of cancers including breast, bowel and gastrointestinal tract, lung, skin, liver and brain cancer. Emerging knowledge from the laboratory is quickly translated into patient trials, with our investigators overseeing active clinical trials right across Australia. Observations from the clinic are then investigated by our research team, creating a continual cycle of learning and improvement between scientific research and patient care. 

Discovery Tour details:

  • Tours are free and run for approximately 90 minutes. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
  • As tour groups visit a working laboratory, closed toe shoes (preferably flat) must be worn for occupational health and safety reasons. 

Getting to the Institute:

Paid parking is available at the Austin hospital and we are just opposite Heidelberg train station.
