Candace could tell you how cancer works, at the most basic level. Students in course 7.016 had a unit dedicated to it. But to truly know cancer, she believes that you have to see how it intertwines with the lives of those it affects, which she was able to do working with Dr. Adrian Lee and Professor Stephen Clarke at University of Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital. Candace had the rare opportunity to gain firsthand experience in clinical research, and her learning curve in medical knowledge was exponential. Having understood how important it is for oncology to continue towards breakthroughs, her future career will be in medical innovation. “Look forward to further collaboration when you are MD-PhD,” Professor Clarke signed for her in his book. It looks like Candace will be returning to Sydney soon, then.
