The South Australian ImmunoGENomics Cancer Institute (SAiGENCI) has been established in the heart of the Adelaide biomedical precinct to consolidate and grow excellence in cancer discovery, diagnosis and treatment.

Three floors of the Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building have been refurbished to create a new research facility, with cutting-edge technologies in immunotherapies and genomics. 

SAiGENCI allows for coordinated collaboration in the fight to control cancer and explore a cure, by attracting and retaining brilliant biomedical and clinical researchers. The Institute was jointly funded by the Federal Department of Health, Central Adelaide Local Health Network and the University of Adelaide.
