Brigid Lynch

 

Associate Professor Brigid Lynch (PhD 2008, The University of Queensland) is a Principal Fellow in the Cancer Epidemiology Division at Cancer Council Victoria, and Honorary Principal Fellow in the Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics, The University of Melbourne. Her work focusses on how physical activity is associated with cancer risk, biological mechanisms underlying risk, and health outcomes for cancer survivors.

Brigid leads several studies at Cancer Council Victoria, including the ABC Accelerometer Study (a project collecting accelerometer data from 4,000 middle-aged and older adults) and a World Cancer Research Fund-funded systematic review of mechanistic evidence linking physical inactivity to breast cancer. Her research is currently supported by a Mid-Career Fellowship from the Victorian Cancer Agency.
