Improving brain cancer treatments

Paediatric high-grade glioma (HGG)

This project focuses on improving treatment and survival for children with some of the most high-risk brain cancers.


Translating research

Sarcoma (bone & soft tissue cancer)

Clinical translation of laboratory tested CAR T cell therapy into Phase 1 trials for paediatric treatment of sarcoma.


Tackling the effects of treatment

Treatment toxicity can cause infertility

Developing genetic risk prediction of long term infertility from childhood cancer therapies leading to informed decisions and application of preventive measures.


Recovering from treatment

RECOVER – Responding to late effects in survivors of childhood cancer

Empowering young survivors of childhood cancer to transition to adulthood with the knowledge, skills and resources required to manage their ongoing health needs.


Supporting clinical trials

Providing access to international clinical trials and additional clinical trial expertise

ANZCHOG international trials set up and manage the clinical trials for bran new kids' cancer treatments, giving kids access to the very latest therapies.


Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML)

Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML)

A highly fatal blood cancer in adults and children. By adding a newly developed NAMPT inhibitor to standard of care treatment, this project can pave the way towards a more effective treatment of poor outcome adult and paediatric AML.


Our Mission

To support bold science that has the greatest chance of clinical success to improve childhood cancer treatments.

What We Do

At The Kids’ Cancer Project we fund RESEARCH. We fund SCIENCE. We fund bold and innovative ideas, upon recommendation from our Research Advisory Committee in our endeavour to see one hundred percent survival rate for children with cancer, while eradicating the harmful effects treatment can bring.

More About Us

Independent Funding Allocation

Our expert Research Advisory Committee (RAC) independently review and rate all grant submissions. Their recommendations are handed to The Kids’ Cancer Project Board who ultimately determine the studies funded. The rules of the peer review process prohibit RAC members endorsing their own projects.
