Dr Heidi Hilton - Funded 2016 & 2017

This exceptional woman is Dr Heidi Hilton, and she is one of two cancer researchers funded by Fight on the Beaches in 2015. She received an additional 12 months funding through Fight on the Beaches in 2016 to further her work.

Dr Hilton has a unique understanding of cancer research and its importance having been successfully treated for breast cancer herself.

Dr Hilton hopes her breast cancer research will help us understand how abnormal hormone action may increase the risk of getting breast cancer, and how to prevent it.
