The exercise oncology team at ACU is committed to enhancing the lives of people with cancer through innovative research and effectively translating research into practice. There are a variety of ways you can get involved with our work towards this goal:
Our work simply isn’t possible without the involvement of research participants. People who participate in our studies receive best practice care and advice from a compassionate group of specialists who are dedicated to improving their health and wellbeing. Their involvement provides extremely valuable information regarding the impact of exercise on the health and wellbeing of people with cancer and has the potential to improve the information and services provided to other cancer patients worldwide. We really value and appreciate the time and contribution our participants make to advancing the scientific knowledge surrounding the role of exercise for people with cancer.
