Our vision for a better future

At Flinders Foundation, we dream of a day when cancer is a chapter in the history books.

We know it’s an almost impossible dream, but we won’t give up. So we’ve adjusted the goalposts instead.

Our vision is to help people live longer and happier lives with the ones they love.

That’s why we built the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer (FCIC) – a place where patients, researchers and clinicians work together to create positive impacts in cancer.

The FCIC is more than an impressive glass building. It’s a hub of excellence and innovation where cutting-edge research meets compassionate care. It’s a place that treats the whole person, not just the disease.

It’s a place where hope and healing is a part of its DNA.

  • Supported 120 cancer research projects totalling more than $40 million
  • Made a breakthrough discovery in glioblastoma research, testing new treatments to see how tumour cells behave
  • Discovered a link between red meat and cancer, leading to dietary recommendations for prevention
  • Developed a bowel cancer test that contributed to the national screening program
  • Saved the Australian health system over $100 million by using precision medicine to tailor doses for each patient
  • Conducted behavioural science studies to promote skin cancer prevention and awareness
  • Established Australia’s first survivorship program to help people with cancer recover and thrive
  • Built a wellness centre to offer holistic services to address the unmet needs of people affected by cancer.

These are just some of the amazing achievements that you have helped us accomplish. But there’s still so much more to do.
