Professor Georgia Chenevix-Trench is a Senior Principal Research Fellow of the NHMRC, a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Sciences and of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences, and head of the Cancer Genetics Laboratory and the Department of Genetics and Computational Biology at the QIMR Berghofer in Brisbane. She is the author of more than 450 peer-reviewed papers, and has been instrumental in the collection of public resources such as kConFab, the Australian consortium for research into familial breast cancer. She is the leader of the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2 (CIMBA), and a founding member of the Breast and Ovarian Cancer Association Consortia, which have identified over 200 susceptibility loci since the advent of genome-wide association studies. A major focus of her current research is to work out the function of the alleles associated with cancer risk, and to identify their target genes.
