ALTG awarded $12 million in funding

The ALTG is pleased to announce over $12 million in funding has been successfully awarded to ALTG, NHMRC Clinical Trial Centre and the Australian Genomic Cancer Medicine Centre for the ASPiRATION project. In this ground-breaking precision medicine study, led by ALTG President A/Prof Nick Pavlakis and ALTG Scientific Advisory Committee Chair, Prof Ben Solomon, ASPiRATION will explore the benefit of routine comprehensive genomic profiling in 1000 newly-diagnosed metastatic, non-squamous, NSCLC patients in Australia. The enhanced genomic profiling will assist in personalising patient care by matching patients to targeted treatments as early as possible to improve patient outcomes.

NHMRC Consultation Report – Clinical Trials Ready

In June 2015 the ALTG provided input into an NHRMC consultation on Clinical Trials Ready, a proposed initiative to recognise clinical trial sites that are “ready, willing and able” to carry out high quality clinical trials in a timely, transparent and efficient manner.  NHMRC has released a report on the consultation that details the findings and next steps and is available on the NHMRC website at https://www.nhmrc.gov.au/research/clinical-trials/nhmrc-clinical-trials-initiatives/development-clinical-trials-ready-initiat

NHMRC will be setting up a Clinical Trials Ready development committee to consider existing clinical trial site recognition schemes, what is required in Australia, the requirements of sponsors, and to produce a draft scheme that can be trialled with several, and varied, clinical trial sites to ensure feasibility.
