Our researchers

Led by world leading cancer researcher, Professor Karen Canfell, our in-house team of researchers specialise in providing expert, impartial evidence that influences the actions of government policy makers, doctors, and the community to reduce the burden of cancer.

Our researchers conduct research that focuses on analysing ‘big data’ to understand cancer risks and outcomes across the population, providing critical evidence to underpin cancer control initiatives in Australia and around the world.
