Associate Professor Clare Scott

Walter and Eliza Hall Institute


I lead an ovarian cancer laboratory focused on developing targeted therapies for ovarian cancer. Our aim is to change the current treatment paradigm of "one size fits all" for women with ovarian cancer. This involves the use of novel pre-clinical models of epithelial ovarian cancer, complementing my activities as a medical oncologist in breast and ovarian cancer.

We focus on designing novel treatments targeted to specific molecules that are altered in epithelial ovarian cancer, with an emphasis on unraveling causes of drug resistance.
