Professor and Associate Dean Research
C24 - Westmead Hospital
Graham Mann is a Professor in Medicine at the University of Sydney at the Westmead Millennium Institute and Melanoma Institute Australia. He helps lead a multidisciplinary melanoma research program funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council and Cancer Institute NSW, with teams across the University of Sydney and at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. These programs are engaged in all aspects of melanoma control, from population-based studies of genetic and environmental susceptibility to melanoma, and psychosocial aspects of melanoma risk, to molecular markers of diagnosis, prognosis and response to treatment. Recent successes have included the discovery of novel genetic risk factors in the Australian population, and of novel biomarkers of prognosis in melanoma.
He is a founding member and principal investigator of the international Melanoma Genetics Consortium (GenoMEL). A founding member of the Kathleen Cuningham Consortium for Research in Familial Breast Cancer (kConFab), he chaired its Data and Analysis Subcommittee until 2008. He was President of the Australian Society for Medical Research in 1996.
He is Associate Dean (Research) in Sydney Medical School and Chair of the University of Sydney Cancer Research Network. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Cancer Council NSW and of its Governance Committee.
In 2010 he was awarded the Prof J A Young Medal for excellence in research and service to the University of Sydney.
