Adult Cancer Program                           Lowy Cancer Research Centre

The Adult Cancer Program (ACP) was formed in 2009 and represents one of the founding members of the Lowy Cancer Research Centre. Led by ACP leader Professor John Pimanda, this program brings together internationally recognised teams of basic science, population health and clinical researchers to address the problem of human cancer.

One of the distinguishing features of the ACP is the broad skill base of our clinical and basic research team leaders and the strong link between research and patient care. Clinicians like Professor John Pimanda have established laboratory research groups while continuing to deliver care to patients with haematological disorders.

A major strength of the Lowy Cancer Research Centre is its strong relationship with key research and clinical organisations. These include the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia and the three major teaching hospitals of the adjacent Randwick Campus (Prince of Wales HospitalRoyal Hospital for WomenSydney Children’s Hospital). The Bright Alliance, a cancer and blood disorders research, clinical teaching and patient care unit is also based at the Prince of Wales Hospital.

The centre is housed within the Lowy Cancer Research Centre building at University of New South Wales, Gate 9, High Street, Kensington.
