I am currently a PhD student in the field of ovarian cancer immunotherapy. twitter:@amywilsss

I am passionate about ovarian cancer research because it is known as the “silent killer”. This is due to its vague symptoms, and as a result ovarian cancer is diagnosed too late. At this point, most patients become resistant to standard therapies. I am interested in finding novel treatments for this disease because I want to improve the lives of women living with ovarian cancer.
