The upcoming MRFF-funded National Cancer Cohort Platform (NCCP) project is building a new digital asset to harness the value of cohort data. Learn how this project can optimise real-world data use to drive future cancer care delivery and research.

Hear all about the NCCP project - the aims, outcomes and approach to the build of this new digital asset. To kick off this event, representatives from the five partner cohorts, LifePool, kConFab, Australian Ovarian Cancer Study (AOCS), Melanoma Research Victoria (MRV), and Variants in Practice (ViP), explain the amazing work they do and talk about the opportunities the NCCP project will bring.

We also hear from Maureen Turner, CEO of BioGrid Australia who will touch on the logistics of the BioGrid system which will facilitate the digital asset, and from Sophy Athan, VCCC Alliance Consumer Advocate & Leader who provides a consumer perspective. To wrap up Associate Professor Ashley Ng provides insight into the value of a centralised data platform and the opportunities that it creates.
