WA 2019 Cancer Researcher of the Year

Tuesday 25th June / presented by Teri Campbell

Professor Gary Lee, medical researcher at the University of Western Australia, was instrumental in setting up pleural medicine as a new subspecialty in Australia.

Pleural effusion is a build-up of fluid in the chest which affects more than 8000 cancer patients a year in Australia, especially those with lung and breast cancers and most of those with mesothelioma, a fatal cancer of the lining of the lung caused by exposure to asbestos.

Western Australia is the first state in which all tertiary hospitals have a specialist pleural physician, all trained by Professor Lee at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. This has significantly improved the diagnosis and management journey of cancer patients with pleural effusions.

Adding to his list of accolades Professor Lee was recognised by the Cancer Council of Western Australia as the 2019 WA Cancer Researcher of the Year.

Professor Lee discusses his research, the award and more with Teri Campbell on The Mag.
