The Centre for Cancer Biology (CCB) incorporates the Hanson Centre for Cancer Research legacy and works with SA based philanthropic organisations to raise funds to support our vision to find causes and cures for cancer.  A key benefit of this collaborative approach is that we can reduce administration costs. We are extremely proud to work with the following organisations to deliver the best value to donors resulting in greater investment in breakthrough research in cancer: 

UniSA logoThe University of South Australia Advancement Services team facilitates mutually beneficial relationships between the University and its benefactors, alumni and friends. Advancement Services is responsible for the alumni network of over 174,000 graduates, and managing programs aimed to foster life-long partnerships with graduates and benefactors. The University’s alumni network spans every industry and profession, and spreads all over the world.

100% of your donation through the The University of South Australia will support cutting edge research and facilities at the Centre for Cancer Biology. No administration costs are deducted.

What will my donation support?

Your donation will be used to fund breakthrough research on the fundamental causes of cancer and translate these discoveries into cures, with global impact. In addition to general donations to the CCB, you may want to consider the following donation options: 

Make a donation in memoriam and in honour

Make a gift to the Centre for Cancer Biology in lieu of flowers to honour a loved one who has passed away from cancer, or to mark special occasions such as birthdays, weddings and anniversaries.

Purchase state of the art research equipment

The CCB relies heavily on donations to enable us to purchase the equipment we require to undertake our research. Please contact us or one of our philanthropic partners above to discuss options. A personalised plaque may be affixed to any equipment bought.


These can be from one to five years and can be named after a family, a family member, or a company.
