The International Childhood Cancer Cohort Consortium (I4C) involving 1 million mothers and babies from 15 countries aims to find a preventable cause for childhood cancers and in particular, leukaemia by identifying genetic and environmental factors that are associated with the subsequent development of childhood cancers. The Murdoch Children's Research Institute plays a pivotal role as the International Data Coordinating Centre and funds from Tour de Cure help support the vital role of the biostatistician who provides methodological and analytical expertise to produce robust, validated findings.
