Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer - FCIC Leader wins SA Scientist of the Year - FCIC

World leading Flinders University Professor of Global Gastrointestinal Health and former Director of Development for the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer (FCIC), Professor Graeme Young was named the SA Scientist of the Year at the Science Excellence Awards on August 16.
Professor Young was commended for his work in bowel cancer, including research into cancer prevention that led to Australia's National Bowel Cancer Screening Program and improved screening in other countries as well as the prevention of infant deaths from diarrhoea in developing countries - a major international project. On accepting the award Prof Young said "I value the label of scientist, because I consider that science is one of the main ways in which we can improve society, and enrich lives. Including that of other societies less fortunate and less empowered than us." He was also acknowledged for his key role in establishing the FCIC - a leading cancer centre in Australia. "The FCIC is a wonderful new resource in Adelaide- a building that houses a world class team of clinicians and researchers who are working together with a shared vision of changing the way cancer impacts on our lives," Professor Young said. "I have personally experienced cancer in three different circumstances," he said. "In my own child, in my patients and in research of cancer statistics in our community, each experience leaving me with a story of intersecting dimensions and an understanding of the pain, the despair, but also the hope that we feel when threatened by this disease." "Progress is being made, but there is much more yet to be done and scientists always need help finding the resources they need to continue their important work." Fresh from the awards, Graeme has set his next challenge - the 200km Ride to Conquer Cancer for the FMC Foundation to raise money and awareness for the work underway at FCIC. While you may not be able to join Graeme and the many others participating for the Ride, you can show your support for his tremendous work by helping him reach his fundraising pledge - visit www.conquercancer.org.au and search for Graeme or call 1300 34 RIDE to make a donation.
