The Victorian Cancer Agency has been established to sustain and enhance Victoria’s excellent track record in cancer research. Funded by the Victorian Government, we invest in projects and initiatives that rapidly translate research into treatments and approaches that will improve clinical practice and care of cancer patients.

The plan identifies priorities for actions that build on our achievements and respond to key challenges across five key priority action areas:
