Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention Research

About us

The Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention Research Group is part of the Sydney School of Public Health at The University of Sydney. The Group contributes to reducing the burden of cancer in the community by conducting research on cancer aetiology, prevention, early detection and survivorship. A particular area of focus is on skin cancer and the group is also affiliated with the Melanoma Institute Australia. We also have a strong emphasis on translational outcomes relevant to cancer control policy and clinical practice, and on national and international multidisciplinary engagement.


The Group’s main office is in Level 6-North of the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, alongside Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and the University of Sydney in Camperdown.
