Rebecca Ritte joined Onemda in 2012 to work as an epidemiological research fellow on the NHMRC-funded research program, “Improving chronic disease outcomes for Indigenous Australians: Causes, Interventions, System Change”. The work involves collaboration between the University of Melbourne, University of South Australia and the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute.

Rebecca joined Onemda from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Division of Cancer Epidemiology. At the DKFZ, Rebecca was involved in European Prospective Study on Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) where she researched the relationship of hormonal and lifestyle risk factors, such as obesity, physical activity, reproductive factors and circulating hormones, with the risk of developing breast cancer subtypes. 

Rebecca will defend her doctoral dissertation, in Germany, at the end of 2012. In 2008, Rebecca completed a Master of Science in Medicine (Clinical Epidemiology) at the University of Sydney.
