An incredibly generous donation from Christine and Bruce Wilson of $5.5 million over 4 years has helped to establish a state-of-the-art centre for genomic testing at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

Genomic testing involves taking a patient’s blood sample to look for critical gene mutations that are known to play a role in their particular blood cancer. The results of the test can then provide a more accurate diagnosis, prognosis and treatment journey such as a clinical trial to access drugs that work against specific gene mutations.

  • 61% clinical relevance to improve diagnosis, prognosis and identification of a personalised treatment.
