An IGFS researcher who investigates the link between nutrition and cancer has received a prestigious award from a leading cancer charity.
On receiving her award, Emma said: "Thanks to the Irish Cancer Society's support, I've been able to find out potential links between cholesterol levels and advanced prostate cancer in men. The more we know about why men get advanced prostate cancer, the more we can do to stop it happening in the first place. Preventing prostate cancer means saving countless men from the often harsh treatment that comes with this disease. The Irish Cancer Society's funding has allowed me to work with international experts and gain invaluable expertise. I plan to pass this knowledge on to future cancer researchers so that we can come even closer to stopping prostate cancer."
