Improving life for women through cancer research

Our Aim

Improving the outcomes and quality of life
for women with gynaecological cancers through
conducting and promoting cooperative clinical trials and
undertaking multidisciplinary research into the causes, prevention
 and treatments of gynaecological cancers.


 
The Australia New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to gynaecological cancer research. We research cancers of the ovaries, cervix, uterus, vulva and vagina. Our clinical trials are conducted with multicentre institutional involvement by over 51 sites throughout Australia and New Zealand.
 
ANZGOG encourages and facilitates high quality national and international collaborative research. It gives women in Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to participate in important clinical trials that are looking at new treatments which hold promise to improve their outcomes.
 
Most major treatment advances have come through clinical trials and it is acknowledge that clinical trials are an effective means to increase cancer cures.
 
ANZGOG members come from all medical disciplines and share a passion for clinical trials research with a view to increasing the range of treatments available to women with gynaecological cancers. 
 
The group promotes public education and awareness of gynaecological cancers and their treatment.  We have consumers as members and on our advisory panel for consumer outreach and trial development.
 
ANZGOG is a health promotion charity with approval to fundraise in most states of Australia.
 
ANZGOG collaborates with over 20 international study groups through membership of the Gynecologic Cancer Intergroup (GCIG).  This group includes the US Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), UK Medical Research Council (MRC) and the EORTC in Belgium.
 
ANZGOG trials continue to deliver results which benefit treatment practices and outcomes for women with gynaecological cancers.
