Our International Clinical Trial Collaborations

Breast Cancer Trials (BCT) works in collaboration with almost 900 researchers in 109 institutions throughout Australia and New Zealand, and with similar researchers internationally. This collaboration ensures that women and specialists in Australia and New Zealand get early access to new, promising treatments. It also places us at the forefront of research progress, playing a pivotal role in influencing breast cancer practice globally thereby contributing to better outcomes for thousands of women in Australia and New Zealand, and potentially millions more throughout the world.
