Biographical details

Dr Anne Cust is an epidemiologist with the Cancer Epidemiology and Services Research group, Sydney School of Public Health, The University of Sydney. She is currently the recipient of a Career Development Fellowship from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and a Fellowshipfrom the Cancer Institute NSW. Her qualifications include a PhD from The University of Sydney and the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Lyon, France, MPH(Hons) from The University of Sydney, BSc from The University of Queensland and BA from The University of Queensland.

She worked in perinatal research and neonatal clinical trials at The University of Sydney for 5 years before completing a PhD in cancer epidemiology in 2007. Her PhD thesis examined the ‘Lifestyle and metabolic determinants of endometrial cancer’. She was enrolled under a cotutelle agreement between the School of Public Health, University of Sydney, and the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Lyon, France. In Lyon, she was based at the WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer, where she had the opportunity to work with investigators on the large ‘European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)’ cohort study. In 2007, she received the prestigious Cancer Institute NSW Premier's Award for Outstanding Research Scholar.

Subsequently, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Molecular, Environmental, Genetic and Analytic Epidemiology, School of Population Health, University of Melbourne, gaining additional training in genetic epidemiology. She returned to Sydney in January 2011. She is lead Investigator on the Australian Melanoma Family Study, investigating the genetic and environmental causes of melanoma especially in young people diagnosed under 40 years of age. She has been a chief investigator on grants from the NHMRC, US National Institutes of Health - National Cancer Institute, Sydney Catalyst, Ramaciotti Foundation, Victorian Cancer Agency and the Fondation de France.

Dr Cust has published over 50 papers and is a reviewer for more than forty international journals. She is the primary supervisor of 3 PhD students and 1 MPhil student. She is a member of the Australasian Epidemiological Association (AEA), American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), Melanoma Genetics International Research Consortium (GenoMEL), GEM (Genes, Environment and Melanoma) Consortium, InterMEL Consortium, and Society for Melanoma Research.

Research interests

Dr Cust's main research aims are to identify causes of cancer, improve early diagnosis and prevention of cancer, and improve the health outcomes of people with cancer. She studies both genetic causes of cancer as well as nongenetic causes such as lifestyle, behaviours and the environment, for example, sun exposure, use of solariums, physical activity, overweight, and diet. Most of her research is collaborative, working with other researchers, clinicians, laboratory researchers and policy makers. Her main research focus is on melanoma and gynaecological cancers.

Teaching and supervision

For over 10 years, Dr Cust has been involved in teaching and tutoring postgraduate epidemiology. She is currently the course coordinator for Genetics and Public Health PUBH5116 at The University of Sydney.
