Dr. Nicole Rankin

Lung Cancer Senior Research Fellow

For Dr. Nicole Rankin, her choice to specialise in lung cancer research was personal, after her uncle was diagnosed with the disease.

Nicole believes addressing stigma needs to be done in an upfront way to challenge peoples beliefs in order to ultimately better outcomes for patients.

Lung cancer is seen as not being worthy of funding, and that’s a huge problem.

Lung Foundation Australia needs your support to change the landscape of lung cancer by funding for research and better treatment options, and campaigning against the stigma that acts as a barrier to action.
