CBNS CI Professor Maria Kavallaris AM was recently awarded the prestigious UTS Chancellor’s Award for Excellence as well as the Science Award, in recognition of her innovative work treating childhood cancers with nanotechnology.
UTS Chancellor Catherine Livingstone spoke highly of Kavallaris’ achievements in her life and career.
“Having overcome cancer in her youth, she has dedicated her professional life to helping more children and adults survive cancer,” said Chancellor Livingstone. “She has made a number of world-first discoveries in understanding how cancer cells become resistant to commonly-used chemotherapy drugs, and how such resistance can be reversed.”
