Ovarian Cancer Australia provides support, awareness and advocacy for women with ovarian cancer and their families and friends.
In July 2011 Ovarian Cancer Australia launched a national research program for ovarian cancer focussed on early detection, diagnosis and treatment.
Through the first ever peer-reviewed national research program for ovarian cancer, Ovarian Cancer Australia will support and promote excellence in ovarian cancer research nationally. We will fund research that is competitive, innovative and patient focused.
In 2012 Ovarian Cancer Australia’s focus for funding is to support the brightest Australian PhD students via a competitive Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme.
Part of our role is also to provide information about ovarian cancer research and research groups in Australia and clinical trials available for women with ovarian cancer.
There are many organisations in Australia and internationally that are dedicated to learning more about ovarian cancer — including risk factors, early detection, treatment, quality of life and improving our general understanding of the disease.
These pages will help you to quickly and easily access the most current ovarian cancer research information.
