WHY WE CARE
Around the world, researchers and clinicians are working hard to improve outcomes for cancer patients, yet it’s clear we must join forces globally to reimagine how advancements in data and technology impact cancer research.
Fragmented and siloed data is a universal challenge in cancer care. Through connecting data sets and working directly with patients to aggregate their anonymised data, we can maximise insights for the benefit of all.
The next decade will see a transformative era in cancer care, as new technologies and approaches to prevention, screening, diagnostics, treatment and survivorship become available. Minderoo Foundation is supporting critical technology, infrastructure and data sharing, and bringing multidisciplinary experts together to lead innovative programs of excellence.
