We are extremely sad to announce that the Scientific Editor of ecancermedicalscience, Dr Linda Cairns, has passed away.
Linda studied Developmental Biology and Embryology at University College London and worked at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO) in Milan for many years.
She represented ecancer at numerous international conferences and provided invaluable support for commissioning new papers and peer review for the journal, as well as using her scientific expertise to guide its editorial direction.
Linda was instrumental in supporting ecancer as a whole since the very beginning and her enthusiasm, sense of humour and warmth will be much missed.
The World Cancer Declaration recognises that to make major reductions in premature deaths, innovative education and training opportunities for healthcare workers in all disciplines of cancer control need to improve significantly.
ecancer plays a critical part in improving access to education for medical professionals.
Every day we help doctors, nurses, patients and their advocates to further their knowledge and improve the quality of care. Please make a donation to support our ongoing work.
Thank you for your support.
