Our policy- and practice-driven research uses world-leading modelling, epidemiology and population trial approaches to inform short, medium and long-term action across all interventions in cancer control.
Our researchers are working on:
- Eliminating cervical cancer as a public health issue in Australia, the region, and globally
- Optimising screening, detection, and surveillance for breast cancer in Australia
- Improving melanoma prevention and early detection in Australia
- Evaluating new strategies for screening for colorectal cancer in Australia and other low-, middle- and high-income countries, and evaluation of strategies to increase participation in Australia.
- Evaluating new approaches to testing and surveillance for prostate cancer
- Evaluating new strategies for tobacco control and lung cancer screening in Australia and in other high-income countries
- Optimising liver cancer control in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region
- Modelling the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cancer prevention, screening and outcomes
- Conducting epidemiological evaluations of cancer risk factors including alcohol consumption, smoking, use of opioids, physical activity and body mass index.
