The governance of the UNSW Medicine Cancer Theme is provided by the UNSW Cancer Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC). 

The Cancer Theme Lead, Professor Elgene Lim, chairs the SAC. The committee members represent all cancer research focus areas across UNSW and affiliated institutions and campuses including: the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD), the South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD), St Vincent’s precinct, the Garvan Institute and The George Institute for Global Health. 

The SAC objectives are to represent the UNSW cancer community, facilitate research outputs, initiatives, internal and external collaborations, and attract and train the next generation of cancer researchers in UNSW.
