Dr Geraldine O’Neill
The Children’s Hospital Westmead
Geraldine has made a most significant contribution to cancer cell research. When cancer spreads it becomes harder for doctors to treat and often becomes more resistant to the therapies, like chemotherapy, that we use to treat them. Geraldine’s research uses cutting edge cell biology techniques to work out how the cancers spread and why they become resistant to the therapy.
Geraldine promotes medical research to the community through the media, public outreach events and as convenor of the Career Seminars of the ASMR.
