Thoracic Cancer & Mesothelioma Research Team
Our researchers have the largest experience with lung cancer, particularly mesothelioma, in Australia. A well co-ordinated and determined approach to the surgical management of these cancers has led to an international reputation for excellence in surgical results and total patient care. Mesothelioma remains a devastating condition. Through our research into early detection and surgical management we are making progress in improving patient outcomes. However, collaboration and an “all hands on deck” approach are key to further advancement of this condition.
