Brief synopsis:

This project is situated in the Centre for Health Services Research at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, and the Queensland Centre for Gynaecological Cancer Research, Herston.

In Australia, one in 22 women will develop a gynaecological cancer. Uterine cancer is the most prevalent form, followed by ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal cancers. Our research is focused on providing better gynaecological cancer treatment options, and improving the quality of life of women diagnosed with gynaecological cancers. Some of our current trial topics include the benefits of exercise during chemotherapy, benefits and harms of sentinel node dissection, the role of lifestyle, diet and obesity in gynaecological cancers, and investigating minimally invasive treatments for endometrial cancer.

We invite you to work with an experienced team of researchers on aspects of research development, management or analysis that you are interested in.
