Professor Clare Scott was honoured with a Member (AM) in the General Division for significant service to gynaecological oncology.
Prof Clare Scott has been a valuable member of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology with a joint appointment with the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI) since 2018. This honour recognises over 25 years of Prof Scott’s dedication and achievement in researching rare cancers. Prof Clare Scott leads an ovarian cancer laboratory focused on developing targeted therapies for ovarian cancer. Their aim is to change the current treatment paradigm of "one size fits all" for women with ovarian cancer. This involves the use of novel pre-clinical models of epithelial ovarian cancer, complementing my activities as a medical oncologist in breast and ovarian cancer.
