Our Services

ANZGOG encourages support for their research programs; 

OASIS – The Ovarian cancer Alliance for SIgnal-Seeking clinical trials is a powerful collaborative effort of internationally-recognised laboratory and clinical researchers, patients and advocates, brought together to advance innovative, targeted clinical trials for defined subsets of ovarian cancer patients.

Fund For New Research – The Fund for New Research promotes the development of investigator-led studies from initial concept to full study.  Grants of $50k, $30k or $20k are awarded to gynaecological cancer researchers to pursue innovative concepts that may lead to a future ANZGOG study.  

Our Beneficiaries

Women with gynaecological cancer now and in the future are the beneficiaries of ANZGOG’s research.  We have more than 1000 members working in the gynaecological cancer sector.  Members collaborate to share expertise and innovative research concepts that can validate new clinical treatments and improve quality of life for their patients.
