About childhood cancer
Childhood cancer comes in many different forms. It’s also different from adult cancers, and requires dedicated research to understand why children develop cancer and how it can be treated.
What we do
The Zero Childhood Cancer Program (ZERO) is a world-leading precision medicine program. The most exciting childhood cancer research initiative ever undertaken in Australia, it is changing the model of care for children with cancer.
ZERO is having an extraordinary impact, not only in terms of improving the outlook for Australian children being treated for cancer, but also in the contribution it is making to the global childhood cancer research effort.
ZERO is an unprecedented collaboration between researchers and clinicians. A true team effort, it includes all eight of Australia’s children’s hospitals, as well as over 20 national and international research partners.
