Ester Hammond Receives 2015 Michael Fry Research Award

Ester Hammond is the recipient of the 2015 Michael Fry Research Award from the Radiation Research Society.

Ester is a CRUK Group Leader and Associate Professor in the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology. Her research is focused on investigating how tumours survive in conditions which include low oxygen (hypoxia), with the aim of targeting the hypoxic parts of tumours to improve cancer therapy.

The Michael Fry Research Award was formerly known as the Radiation Research Award. It was established to recognise junior scientists who have made extraordinary contributions to the field of radiation research.

Ester will give a seminar and receive the award at the Radiation Research Society 61st Annual Meeting in Florida in September.
