Snowdome is proud to share that donors have helped more than 372 Australian blood cancer patients gain access to new, cutting-edge therapies since Snowdome formed in 2010.
Over the years, Snowdome has supported a variety of ground-breaking research to help researchers uncover new targets, treatments and diagnostics. Importantly it has helped Australian blood cancer patients access next-generation treatments to help them live longer, better lives.
An incredibly generous donation from Christine and Bruce Wilson of $5.5 million was received in 2017. The funding is spread over 4 years to establish a state-of-the-art centre for genomic testing at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. See Wilson Centre for Genomics.
Blood Cancer Research WA was established in April 2018 under the leadership of Associate Professor Chan Cheah. The centre aims to bring blood cancer trials to the west enabling Western Australian patients to access potentially life-saving treatments in their home state.
