Children's Cancer Institute

Charity Overview

Children’s Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research organisation in Australia dedicated 100% to childhood cancer research, existing solely to cure childhood cancer and improve the quality of life for survivors.

The Institute was originally known as The Children's Leukaemia and Cancer Foundation, established in May 1976 by a dedicated group of parents and doctors of children with cancer.  Children's Cancer Institute opened its own research laboratories in 1984 and has since grown to employ nearly 200 staff and students, establishing a national and international reputation for scientific excellence.
