The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) Project is delivering a new $1 billion purpose-built facility for cancer research, treatment, education and care in Melbourne's Parkville Biomedical Precinct.

 From 24 June 2016, the VCCC building will be the new home for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. It will also provide new cancer research and clinical services for Melbourne Health, new research facilities for The University of Melbourne and education facilities.

The VCCC building is located on the intersections of Flemington Road, Grattan Street and Elizabeth Street. Covered bridges connect the VCCC building to new facilities at The Royal Melbourne Hospital.

In addition to the new facilities, ten world-leading cancer organisations have come together to form the VCCC Alliance to share knowledge and resources and drive the next generation of cancer research, education, treatment and care.

The VCCC Project was jointly funded by the Victorian and Australian governments.

Delivered as a public private partnership (PPP) under the State Government's Partnerships Victoria policy, Plenary Health consortium is the private sector partner.
