ICCON: The inherited cancer connect partnership

Inherited cancer syndromes are individually rare but collectively important as they impose a significant impact on affected families and national health care costs.

More information

A collaborative approach is essential in order to understand these syndromes more effectively. ICCON is a Partnership of familial cancer centres within Australia that are working together to develop national infrastructure to better connect the inherited cancer community, including clinicians and researchers; identify people at risk of heritable cancers; and improve the accuracy of inherited cancer risk prediction and management strategies.

ICCON is being run out of national Familial Cancer Centres.
