The oncology team consists of three oncologists, all experienced in the conduct of clinical trials. The site has a longstanding track record in conducting Phase II- IV oncology clinical trials particularly for:
- Colo-rectal cancer and GI cancers
- Lung cancer
- Breast cancer
- Prostate cancer
However, we also conduct a variety of other cancer-related trials.
We list all trials open to accrual on the WA Cancer Council website to enable medical referrals and self-referrals from patients. The oncologists may also refer patients from oncology clinics conducted off-site to facilitate trial participation.
