Colorectal cancer is the second highest cause of cancer deaths in Victoria. However, if detected early, 90% of bowel cancer cases can be cured.

Since 2008, the VCB has worked with CSIRO initially and later with Melbourne based start-up company Rhythm Biosciences Ltd to provide blood serum from over 500 cancer and control patients to develop a simple, inexpensive blood test using its pioneering ColoSTAT® technology.

The Victorian Cancer Biobank through the Cancer Council Victoria as Lead Agency is supported by the Victorian Government through the Victorian Cancer Agency, a business unit of the Department of Health.

RAP Victorian Cancer Biobank would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work. We would also like to pay respect to the elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
