Medicine is constantly evolving. To ensure we remain at the forefront of the latest approaches to cancer care and treatment, research is conducted by every department of Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, from medical oncology and radiation oncology, to surgery, nursing, and complementary therapies.
Not only does Chris O’Brien Lifehouse emphasise continual interaction between clinicians and researchers to drive standards of care forward, in many cases the treating clinician and researcher are one and the same, eliminating the gap between lab and clinic altogether. Never to be forgotten are the people behind this data; real patients and families. The ultimate benchmarks by which we measure ourselves are how their lives are improved.
