The ABC Study is run by the Cancer Epidemiology Division at Cancer Council Victoria. The Division conducts a range of research aimed at identifying the factors that contribute to, or protect against, the development of cancer. It has a multidisciplinary team of epidemiologists, statisticians, dieticians, data managers and support staff, and a strong focus on investigating the roles of genetics, lifestyle and nutrition in the development of cancer.
