The CTC oncology program is involved in clinical trials research across a broad range of cancers. See the quick links on the right for details. Our group works collaboratively as sponsor, coordinating centre or supporting consultant with five specialised oncology research groups:

  • Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trials Group (AGITG)
  • Australia New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group (ANZGOG)
  • Australasian Lung Cancer Trials Group (ALTG)
  • Australian and New Zealand Urogenital and Prostate Cancer Trials Group (ANZUP)
  • Cooperative Trials Group for Neuro-Oncology (COGNO)

We also provide randomisation and statistical support to the Australia & New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group (ANZ BCTG) and trial concept development support to the Primary Care Cooperative Cancer Clinical Trials Group (PC4), and we lead substudies which examine questions about quality of life, cost-effectiveness and biomarkers in cancer treatment.

Currently our group employs over 70 people working to support more than 40 clinical trials. Our staff contribute a variety of essential skills to these trials, spanning clinical leadership, trial design, project management, biostatistical analysis, data management, monitoring, administration and coordination and systems development.
