Forgotten Cancers Project

A new initiative focussing on the causes of less common cancers

The Forgotten Cancers Project is one of the first epidemiological-based research projects in the world focussing on the causes of less common cancers.

We need your help!

All Australians who have been diagnosed with one or more of our 15 targeted cancers are invited to participate. Participants must be over the age of 18 and recruitment is voluntary.

The 15 selected cancers have been prioritised based on either their poor survival and/or a limited understanding of their causes.
