Research will be a big part of the new Minderoo Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre (MCCCC), which will have dedicated spaces within both the new children’s hospital and cancer research building, and the adjacent UNSW Health Translation Hub. 

Research activities will span the entire spectrum – from laboratory research to prevention and treatment – accelerating innovation to intervention in research-driven clinical care. 

Nowhere will this be more visible than in the Children’s Cancer Institute lab spaces, and to help inspire hope and discovery, there will also be an exciting new public lab space in the ground level front of house area of the SCH1/MCCCC building.

The public lab will provide an innovative way for the community to learn about breakthrough research behind the cancer journey, and experience first-hand scientific demonstrations.

On completion of the project, members of the public will be able to tour the public lab, offering an exciting and informative way to explore research.
