Zero childhood cancer

Cancer research takes an enormous amount of data, which is why NetApp is working with Australia’s CCI to accelerate discoveries and try to solve childhood cancer. The CCI uses NetApp technology to store, manage, and analyze crucial research data.

Community engagement to cure cancer

“CEO Dare to Cure” is a community engagement event and fundraising initiative of the CCI. NetApp Australia is partnering with the CCI on the new 3-year initiative, building on a shared vision to combat childhood cancer and improve outcomes for young cancer patients.
