Scott Canner Young Research Grant: Dr Sarah Hayes

Congratulations to Dr Sarah Hayes from the Bill Walsh Lab. at the Kolling Institute, University of Sydney!

Sarah was awarded a Tour de Cure, Scott Canner Young Researcher Grant for $125,000 for a project titled “Identification of diagnostic protein biomarkers for less invasive screening of lung cancer”.

“Lung cancer is the second most common cancer and is a leading cause of mortality globally. Our project seeks to discover if levels of specific proteins in plasma or exhaled breath are correlated with lung cancer diagnosis, which could be used for less-invasive screening of high-risk populations”.

sarahWell done Sarah!
