And this is why we do what we do to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer research #ROCKforROC #ROCInc #AGCT #JGCT #OvarianCancer #OvarianCancerAwarenessMonthHappy International Day of Women and Girls in Science!

Today we’re shining a light on the inspiring achievements of female researchers like Amy Wilson, who are getting us closer to a world where every woman, everywhere lives free from the threat of ovarian cancer.

Amy always knew that science was her passion, but after graduating with a Bachelor’s degree, she didn’t know where to focus her work—until she met Dr Andrew Stephens (Research Group Head, Ovarian Cancer Biomarkers Laboratory at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research).

“I thought an Honours research degree was the next logical step. I had an interview with Dr Stephens and I absolutely loved the lab and the project, even though I didn't know very much about ovarian cancer. I was saddened to learn how 'silent' the disease was and how large the gaps in research are, particularly in terms of early detection and a lack of targeted treatments for recurrent patients.

It was actually after seeing women with ovarian cancer speak—through our connection with the OCRF—that I realised what I was doing could make a large difference, and my work has the potential to save lives. When it came to doing a PhD in the same research area, there was no question about it—and so began my research career.



I have seen first hand that research is the answer, and I love working alongside like-minded scientists that are passionate about discovery and improving survival rates, just like me.”

We’re so lucky to have so many dedicated, incredible researchers like Amy in our OCRF community. You can find out more about Amy’s ovarian cancer research work here. (hudson.org.au/researcher-profile/amy-wilson/)

This International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we’re shining a light on Associate Professor Michelle Hill, whose early detection research project received OCRF funding in our 2018 grant round.



Like so many others, she was drawn to a career in research for the potential to make change. Curious about how the body works, she chose to major in biochemistry and cell biology.



“I enjoy designing experiments, particularly new techniques—it is like creating something new. Research is actually a creative discipline, one needs to have lots of ideas and be able to troubleshoot.”



Associate Professor Hill is currently exploring how we can identify glycoproteins in the blood to detect ovarian cancer.
