WELCOME TO THE VICTORIAN
COMPREHENSIVE CANCER CENTRE PROJECT
|The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) Project will deliver a new, $1 billion facility purpose-built for cancer research, treatment and care in the Melbourne suburb of Parkville, Victoria.|
|Construction is under way to create a brand new home for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and new cancer research and clinical services for Melbourne Health and The University of Melbourne.|
In addition to the new facilities being built, eight world-leading cancer organisations have come together to share knowledge and resources and drive the next generation of cancer research, education, treatment and care.
Based on the site of the former Royal Dental Hospital (corner Grattan Street, Flemington Road and Royal Parade) and linked by bridges across to new facilities at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, the VCCC Project will assist building partners to accelerate the discovery of new cancer treatments, attract the nation’s leading cancer researchers and provide a centre of excellence for people affected by cancer.
The VCCC Project is jointly funded by the Victorian and Australian governments. Construction of the new $1 billion facility will begin in 2011 and be completed by the end of 2015.
