Don't miss this great opportunity to discover our research laboratories!

You are invited to a FREE behind-the-scenes look at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute (ONJCRI) immunology labs to celebrate the annual Day of Immunology. Hear from passionate researchers, see the facilities where discoveries happen, see cancer cells under a microscope and learn more about cancer and immunology.

Our priority is to outsmart cancer. We want to detect cancer earlier, improve existing treatments, and discover new cures that help people live better beyond cancer. 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 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 clinical trials, with our investigators overseeing active 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.

We invite you to join our free tours, each 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.
