Many approaches to cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment have been designed based on an “average” person. However, people are different, and what works well for one person may not be the best option for another.
Our research aims to integrate individual and population-level genomic, lifestyle, and medical information for successful precision health: tailoring the right intervention and support to the right population at the right time, from risk-stratified cancer screening and early detection, to targeted cancer treatment.
To help effectively and sustainably optimise cancer control through precision health approaches, the stream brings together expertise in genomics, epidemiology, and innovative analyses of large-scale data, with strong collaborative links to Australian and international researchers.
Key areas of focus in this stream include:
