Dr Paula Cunnea says: “The power of a team led by women, researching women’s cancer cannot be under-estimated. I am proud to lead this team with Professor Christina Fotopoulou. We are profoundly grateful to The Parasol Foundation for their support so more women we hope will see there is a bright future working in scientific and clinical research”.
