Centre for Behavioural Research in Cancer

The Centre for Behavioural Research in Cancer (CBRC) focuses on finding out the best ways to prevent or reduce behaviours that increase cancer risk, and to support participation in evidence-based cancer screening. CBRC’s work is an important part of Cancer Council Victoria’s mission to prevent cancer and save lives. 

We share our research and evaluation findings with our world-leading cancer prevention programs such as Quit and SunSmart to help improve their performance. Our behavioural research also helps develop cancer prevention and screening policies that change the environment to better support healthy behaviours.

CBRC’s research is internationally recognised and has guided cancer prevention policies and programs in Victoria, in Australia and worldwide. CBRC’s staff contingent varies between 20 to 30 researchers, depending on the number and size of research projects underway.
