Improving life for women through cancer research

ANZGOG is well regarded internationally for its high standards of clinical trial practice and quality data processing. 

We focus on national and international collaborative clinical trials. ANZGOG has over 51 trial sites in Australia and New Zealand. North American and Europe are part of the ANZGOG network. In 2012 India joined with the Outback Trial.

ANZGOG has strong partnerships with many international clinical trials groups.  Women in Australia and New Zealand can take part in large scale, global clinical trials because of these links.
