About the School
The La Trobe University School of Cancer Medicine is the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute (ONJCRI), where researchers and clinicians work together to make new scientific discoveries and translate them into new treatments for the benefit of cancer patients. The School is embedded in the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre, a comprehensive cancer centre at the Austin Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.
All research activities are enhanced and supported by outstanding platform technologies, infrastructure, facilities, and technical expertise. The School's significant contributions to basic discovery, translational research and clinical trials are enhanced through strong collaborative research and joint research training with LIMS scientists.
Professor Matthias Ernst is the inaugural Head of School of Cancer Medicine, and Scientific Director, Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute.
