Our focus is always on delivering exceptional cancer care

ROC works in conjunction with Oncology Research Australia (ORA) to advance scientific research in the field of cancer treatment and care by providing ROC staff and clients the opportunity to participate in high quality clinical trials. 

Oncology Research Australia (ORA) was founded in July 2008. The research team consists of a collaborative network of radiation oncologists, radiation therapists, physicists, medical oncologists, oncology nursing staff, data managers and a biostatistician working together to develop new treatments in the field of cancer research and improving health care for patients.

ORA will continue to expand research support to the growing number of Radiation Oncology Centres. Across eight years of operation, ORA has been involved in over 30 trials and recruited over 300 patients to trials and investigator initiated projects.

ORA is able to continue this work through financial support from Cancer Council Queensland grants, fundraising activities and donations.  

As a not-for-profit organisation, all funds raised by ORA are reinvested into supporting initiatives such as unfunded clinical trials, investigator and allied health driven research projects, improving patient access to trials, patient outcomes projects, new equipment and educational initiatives – all initiatives that support developments in cancer research.

ORA is currently running trials at Toowoomba, Cairns and Gold Coast sites.

ORA is a not-for-profit registered and endorsed charitable institution: CH2520.
