Research for a World Without Breast Cancer

The Australia and New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group (ANZBCTG) conducts an independent, collaborative breast cancer clinical trials research program to save lives from breast cancer.
Clinical trials identify new, safe and effective treatments and treatment strategies for those diagnosed with breast cancer and prevention strategies for all, particularly for women at increased risk. 
We work with researchers throughout Australia, New Zealand and globally to pool resources, avoid duplication, share knowledge and achieve research progress faster for the benefit of all women.
The Breast Cancer Institute of Australia (BCIA) is the fundraising and education department of the ANZBCTG.  Ongoing support for clinical trials research is essential for progress - results can be achieved more quickly, when more funding is available.  
Our aim is to eradicate all suffering from breast cancer and achieve the ultimate goal of “a world without breast cancer.”
