About your environment

Since our establishment in 1936, Cancer Council Victoria has developed an international reputation for our innovative work in cancer research, prevention and support. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we play a leading role in reducing the impact of all cancers on all people.


The Cancer Epidemiology Division (CED) conducts a broad range of research aimed at expanding our understanding of the factors that contribute to or protect against the development of cancer, or survival following a cancer diagnosis. It comprises a multidisciplinary team of epidemiologists, statisticians, dieticians, data managers and support staff, committed to understanding how to improve our efforts at cancer control.

CED research is based on several research platforms and programs that contribute to the generation of knowledge about cancer. These include the Melbourne Collaborative Cohort Study (Health 2020); the Australian Breakthrough Cancer (ABC) Study; the Rare or Under-Researched Cancers Program; the Prostate Cancer Program; the Lifestyle Epidemiology Program which contains two major sub-programs, Diet and Nutrition and Physical Activity; the Genomic and Molecular Epidemiology Program which encompasses germline and tumour genetics, epigenetics and other omics. CED researchers collaborate extensively with other researchers in Australia and overseas.


The ABC Study is a longitudinal cohort study of diet, health, lifestyle and genetics and the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. The ABC Study team is responsible for performing activities involved in participant recruitment, study conduct, records management and participant follow up for the ABC Study and corresponding sub-studies.
