We are excited to hear about the latest funding boost to Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute to become a Centre of Excellence in CAR T-Cell therapy. More patients will soon have access to life-changing immunotherapy clinical trials thanks to a $105 million co-investment announced by Greg Hunt MP and the Commonwealth Government.
This significant $80 million government investment, with input from Peter Mac and the Peter Mac Foundation, will provide access to treatments previously only offered overseas, making Melbourne a global hub for immunotherapy.
As with other cancer types, we hold out hope that this therapy could be manipulated and researched to have effect on NET cancers.
