Award to researcher for cancer fertility work
For her work on how cancer patients can stay fertile, an Adelaide researcher has won an award.
Kylie Dunning from Adelaide University for a presentation on how eggs can be removed before cancer treatment and later replaced has in the South Australian Young Investigator awards taken the $10,000 prize.
Dr Dunning stated that to visit research collaborators in the United States, she will probably use the prize money.
She added, "It was a difficult task for a scientist in order to present their research to the general community but I also found it really enjoyable. It's not like any other presentation I've given before and winning this award will help my career."
A panel of journalists judged that the presenter's ability to explain their research in plain terms.
Dr Dunning hopes as legendary US cyclist and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong her work can give female cancer patients the same opportunities to have children.
