Breast cancer researcher recognised by UK Royal Society

30 April

The United Kingdom’s national science academy, the Royal Society, has recognised the achievements of Melbourne breast cancer researcher Professor Jane Visvader, bestowing its fellowship on her.

 

Professor Jane Visvader, Victoria Prize for Science and Innovation 2018 recipient, is one of only three Australians – and among 62 people worldwide – to be elected to the Royal Society in 2020. She was honoured for her significant contributions to breast cancer research and developmental biology, which have revealed how the breast is formed from stem cells, and the relationship between normal breast cells and cancer.

 

Professor Visvader’s research discoveries have underpinned the development of better ways to treat and prevent breast cancer, some of which are now in clinical trials.
