The future is bright for people with cancer and for patients.
That’s because the new $300 million Carnegie Health Centre for Research and Treatment is expected to be up and running in just four years.
It’s a massive boost for Adelaide’s medical and scientific sectors, which are battling to make sure the new centre is well funded.
It will be a new hub for research and development of therapies for cancer.
And it’s set to be the largest and most cost-effective cancer centre in the country.
But while the centre will be built on top of the existing Adelaide Cancer Centre, the Adelaide Health Department says it’s a new and exciting facility for the region.
“We’re very excited about what we’re doing at the Carnegie Health Center for Research, Treatment and Research,” Adelaide Mayor Peter McKay said.
“The Carnegie is a big deal in terms of being able to offer the most advanced, the most cutting edge, the latest in technology and therapies for a lot of cancers.”
And it will be an amazing hub for science and technology in the state.
The new centre will have three new cancer therapies that have been tested in a clinical trial in Australia.
“All the treatments have been done by the Carnegie Institute of Technology in California,” Mr McKay said in an interview.
“They’re all the best treatments available anywhere.”
In the same way the Carnegie Centre will be able to support patients and researchers who need to collaborate, Adelaide will be looking to support its local researchers and researchers at the University of Adelaide.
The University of Queensland is building a new research facility for its medical school, and it will also house a new cancer centre.
The Centre will also provide support for research in the pharmaceutical industry and medical education.
It also will be the home of a new centre for cancer prevention and treatment, which will help to provide new ways to reduce the risk of dying from cancer.
“There’s a huge opportunity for the local community to be a part of the Carnegie,” Mr Clark said.
It’ll also provide a home for some of the country’s most promising researchers and students, like Dr Steven Vickers, a Professor of Pathology at the Adelaide Cancer Research Institute.
“This will be where we’ll be able have a team of researchers to be able study the most promising new cancer treatments and to be there with the students and the researchers who will be doing that work,” he said.
A lot of our research is being done here and it’s an important hub for that research to take place.
“There’s been a lot that has happened in the last few years with the opening of the new Carnegie and this will provide a huge amount of support to the research community in the area.”
The new Carnegie Centre is expected have an impact on the Adelaide region.”
It’s very exciting for me personally to be part of this centre.”
The new Carnegie Centre is expected have an impact on the Adelaide region.
The Carnegie Centre for Cancer Research will also host a series of conferences.
The first conference will be in August next year, where a team from the Carnegie will be presenting.
“Cancer research in Adelaide is very important,” Dr Clark said, adding that this is the first time that researchers from Adelaide will get to meet each other.
“What we’re looking forward to are some of our students and students coming down here and having a good time with the scientists here and also with the local medical community.”
