The Dame Roma Mitchell Cancer Research Laboratories performs ground breaking research into breast and prostate cancer. We leverage their similarities to make discoveries focused on improving survival and quality of life for people suffering these common cancers, the ultimate goal being to prevent or cure both diseases.

Government grants are not adequate to fully support our research, especially as money for research diminishes every year. Your generosity is essential to fund our priority research projects and support our staff.  You can read the DRMCRL donation bequest guidelines here. We are happy to provide a tour of our laboratories and explain how we undertake our research activities.  

Every donation, no matter how small, has the potential to save lives. As we are an institute of the University of Adelaide, you know that 100% of your donation will fund research—and all donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Alternatively, you can provide a permanent legacy for the Dame Roma Mitchell Cancer Research Laboratories through a bequest, either by gift or by will.

Thank you for helping us to continue our life-saving research.
