Why Work for Breast Cancer Trials?
Breast Cancer Trials is committed to exploring and finding better treatments for people affected by breast cancer through clinical trials research. We are a group of world-leading breast cancer researchers based in Australia and New Zealand, supported by a team of professional staff who manage our clinical trials and raise the money we need to do the work we do.
Our research has improved the treatment of breast cancer, led to changes in the way breast cancer is managed, and saved the lives of millions of people affected by breast cancer since our inception in 1978. Our goal is for breast cancer patients to live better, to live longer, and to never die from breast cancer.
Our values – We before Me, Curiosity, Empathy and Greatness – are not just words, they are the simple behaviours of how we work on a daily basis. And “For good and for great”, is the energy and driving force behind everything we do.
The work we do and the decisions we make serve the common good of all people who are affected with breast cancer, as we strive every day to make the world a better place.
Organisations don’t make things happen; people do. Are you one of these people?
