Research & Clinical Trials

We stand as the forefront of groundbreaking Breast Cancer research and innovation in Western Australia

World class Research

As our name suggests, Breast Cancer Research Centre-WA conducts research into breast cancer treatment and care. Our research informs and underpins the treatment we provide to our patients. BCRC-WA was founded in 2009 with a vision to provide high quality care to breast cancer patients while conducting trials into the next generation of cancer drugs. This would ensure patients have access to the most advanced treatments.


International trials undertaken have ultimately led to a change in the way breast cancer is treated


Clinical Trials Completed with 57% focused on furthering our understanding of treatments for metastatic breast cancer

The reason I’m here today is unequivocally because of research. Without the trials and research that had been done before I was diagnosed, I would not be here.


Clinical Trials

At BCRC-WA, our dedicated Breast Clinical Trials Unit (BCTU) performs many clinical trials including those designed to evaluate new treatments versus current (approved) treatments, evaluate approved treatments in new settings, evaluate ways of reducing side effects of treatment, expand the understanding of the biological behavior of breast cancer and investigate the social and emotional impact of breast cancer on patients and their families.

Featured research projects

In collaboration with pharmaceutical companies or other research groups, we design, fund and perform our own research projects. By designing and funding our own studies, we can focus directly on the needs of our own patients seen through the Perth Breast Cancer Institute.
