Only the top ranking students in a medicine discipline are considered for this award and only 1 scholarship is allocated each year! The scholarship will support Melissa in her PhD studies in the Molecular Signalling Laboratory of Prof Stuart Pitson, where she is examining ways to improve therapy for multiple myeloma, a currently incurable blood cancer.

Being selected as the top medical research student in South Australia is indeed a huge achievement and privilege and we look forward to great things from Melissa.
