The TCRN is a member-based network formed to create an innovative and supportive environment for the translation of research findings into improvements in patient care and outcomes. Our members participate actively across a range of activities in the field of translational cancer research. The TCRN thrives on the strength, enthusiasm and collaborative outputs of our membership – all of whom are working towards our goal of cultivating a sustainable translational research engine to formulate and implement research-led improvements in cancer patient care.

Membership to the TCRN is free, with a series of benefits including discounted services from the Lowy Biorepository, access to health data sets, networking and research collaboration opportunities, seminars and educational events, regular member communications, and application opportunities for translational cancer research funding from both Cancer Institute NSW and the TCRN.

Our membership is structured in groups of 10 or more, each of which holds a formal affiliation to one of the TCRN founding institutions: The University of New South Wales, Prince of Wales Hospital, St George Hospital, Royal Hospital for Women, The Sutherland Hospital, Border Medical Oncology Research Unit and University of Technology, Sydney.

Individual members must work in cancer research, or in the delivery of cancer services, or have responsibility for the care of patients with cancer (such as in the case of general practitioners) and agree to work actively towards the goals and KPI’s of the TCRN. Each of our Member Groups is headed by a Responsible Member, who holds primary responsibility for ensuring that the activities and achievements of their group are shared both amongst the Network and to external stakeholders.
