World Cancer Day: 4 February

Through the theme 'Cancer – Not beyond us', World Cancer Day 2015 emphasises the need for taking action and implementing what we already know in order to push the global fight against cancer to a whole new level.

The campaign will explore how we can implement what we already know in the areas of prevention, early detection, treatment and care, and in turn, open up to the exciting prospect that we can impact the global cancer burden – for the better. 

By moving forward together we have the potential to show: Cancer. It is not beyond us.

The TCRN marks World Cancer Day 2015 by highlighting the work of our members... 

Welcome to the TCRN

The Translational Cancer Research Network (TCRN) is a collaborative and interactive cancer research community based in the South East of Sydney, with links to cancer services and researchers in inner and southern Sydney, and Albury. It was formed to create an innovative and supportive environment for the translation of cancer research into improvements in patient care.
