Professor Campbell is co-Head of the Cancer Genomics and Genetics Program at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Professor in the Sir Peter MacCallum Department of Oncology at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Professor Campbell’s laboratory is regarded as one of Australia’s leading breast and ovarian cancer genetics facilities. His laboratory has particular international recognition for work on the discovery of new familial breast and ovarian cancer predisposition genes through exome sequencing and large scale targeted sequencing approaches.
Professor Campbell has also made a series of seminal contributions to the understanding of the etiology of ovarian cancer and continues a leading international role into somatic molecular analyses of breast and ovarian cancer precursor lesions. He is the lead investigator of Lifepool, which is a cohort of 54,000 women attending Breast Screening services. Lifepool (www.lifepool.org) provides an internationally unique resource capable of providing definitive answers to critical questions in breast cancer epidemiology and biology.
