Associate Professor Garvey is an Indigenous researcher who is currently leading two large national grants: a National Centre of Research Excellence in Cancer and Indigenous People; and a Cancer Council New South Wales Strategic Research Partnership Grant with investigators from leading research institutes across Australia. She is also currently a chief investigator of other large epidemiological and psycho-oncology cancer projects that are reviewing support services, screening programs, system approaches to service delivery and the feasibility of specific interventions to improve the outcomes in cancer for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
