President & CEO, BC Cancer Foundation

Hi everyone,

First, I’d like to say thank you to Dr. Miller for her insightful posts on the bright future of ovarian and gynecologic cancer research. The success of the OvCaRe program reflects the strength of the partnership of philanthropy and research, and it is wonderful to hear about the world-class developments happening right here in B.C.

One topic that Dr. Miller touched on in her final post is the importance of the up and coming generation of B.C. researchers: our next guest blogger, Kelsie Thu, is one of these young leaders. Kelsie is an award-winning graduate student in Interdisciplinary Oncology at the University of British Columbia, which means that she spends a lot of her time at the BC Cancer Research Centre. She is passionate about lung and pancreatic cancer research, and will be blogging about her focus in these areas.

Thanks for reading,

Douglas
