Welcome

Welcome to the Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trials Group (AGITG) and the GI Cancer Institute.

We are a not-for-profit membership organisation dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of patients with Gastro-Intestinal (GI) cancer by developing and conducting collaborative multidisciplinary clinical trials. The AGITG membership encompasses a wide range of medical specialists, scientists, nurses, allied health professionals and consumers involved in all aspects of Gastro-Intestinal (GI) cancer research.

GI cancer includes the digestive organs: oesophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder and biliary tract, pancreas, large and small bowel, rectum and anus.

The GI Cancer Institute and the AGITG work together to raise funds and awareness of GI cancer and clinical trials.
