His research interests include quantitative evolutionary genetics in cancer cell populations, mapping a cancer neochromosome at single nucleotide resolution, and understanding the role of the immune system in development of osteosarcoma. Professor Thomas has played a key role in establishing several large-scale cancer cohorts, including the International Sarcoma Kindred Study and Cancer 2015, a 10,000 strong Framingham-style cohort of newly diagnosed cancer patients in Victoria.
