There is an ever-growing number of people surviving cancer, and as such, we are starting to understand the long-term consequences of this disease and its harsh treatment. These consequences can be physical, psychosocial and financial.
Hannah Wardill’s research aims to improve the quality of life of people living with or beyond cancer through personalized and proactive supportive care solutions that target common multiple problems in parallel. She is currently investigating the benefits of faecal transplants in people with blood cancer and will soon be starting a large clinical trial to evaluate medicinal cannabis in people with advanced cancer.
Hannah has spoken at several public events including at Raising the Bar and the “Would I lie to You” scientific myths gameshow event. She has also given keynote addresses at the opening of St Mary’s STEM Centre and at the 2020 SACE Merit Ceremony.
Dr Wardill completed her PhD in 2016 at the University of Adelaide. She is currently NHMRC CJ Martin Biomedical Research Fellow and Lead of the Supportive Oncology Research Group – The University of Adelaide (affiliated with: SAHMRI and University Medical Centre Groningen).
