Irene Sechi

Mention Young Woman of Science Award 2022
Irene Sechi, thirty-one years old from Cagliari, PhD candidate in Oncology, at the Department of Oncology, University of Oxford (United Kingdom).

Special mention for the determination and grit with which she undertook her studies in relation to a disease, osteosarcoma, of which she herself was a patient in her adolescence and for her research studies aimed at identifying potential new pharmacological strategies based on the use of so-called “super-intelligent” anticancer drugs which act according to the principle of “synthetic lethality” to be proposed in the treatment of sarcoma and rare pediatric tumours.
