Large-scale studies with many thousands of people enable us to research different aspects of cancer in much more detail than ever before. This includes answering key questions such as: Which factors increase cancer risk? What are the patterns of cancer diagnosis, treatments, and outcomes? What is the cost of cancer? How many cancer cases and deaths will occur in the future?
This research stream combines epidemiology, genetics, health services and health economics research to answer these questions. To enable future planning for healthcare delivery and inform policy, the team also uses statistical methods to estimate the future burden of cancer.
The team also provides analytical, methodological and systematic literature review expertise across The Daffodil Centre’s research hubs, as well as to programs delivered by Cancer Council NSW.
Current areas of research focus include:
