Brain Cancer Foundation CEO Lance Kawaguchi says the brain cancer dedicated clinical accelerator program, announced by Australia’s leading brain cancer organisation, will be the “largest clinical accelerator globally”.

“Most people don’t realise that brain cancer is the number one killer of children and also Australians under the age of 40 and there really hasn’t been any new treatments over the past 30 years,” Mr Kawaguchi told Sky News Australia.

“So, what we’re trying to do is encourage up and coming biotechs here in Australia and also in New Zealand to really get bold and try to bring their treatments as quickly as possible so we can help them get to phase one … onwards.”
