Personal profile


A/Prof Jennifer Stone is a cancer epidemiologist/biostatistician and a prominent international and national expert in breast cancer screening research, particularly relating to breast density. As a National Breast Cancer Foundation-funded Principal Research Fellow and Head of the Genetic Epidemiology Group at the University of Western Australia, her research aims to improve breast cancer screening by accumulating translatable evidence for the clinical use of risk factors, like breast density and body mass index, to tailor screening and improve breast cancer outcomes through early diagnosis and primary prevention strategies. A/Prof Stone is currently leading an NHMRC Targeted Call for Research project, BreastScreen Plus, investigating a novel intervention targeting obesity-related barriers to mammographic screening. She is also CI on a recently funded NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence investigating Precision Public Health Approaches to Breast Cancer Screening, Early Detection and Mortality Reduction. A/Prof Stone also recently established the Australian Breast Density Consumer Advisory Council to provide a community perspective on the research activities across Australian institutions interested in breast density research and breast cancer screening.
