Mavis Robertson Fellowship

The Mavis Robertson Fellowship was established in 2011 and is awarded each year to a female Principal Investigator considered by NBCF to exhibit the greatest promise as a leader in breast cancer research in Australia.

Mavis Robertson was a founder of the Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic and a Trustee of NBCF for over 10 years. Since 1998 the Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic has raised over $37 million for breast cancer research and remains the most significant single donor to the NBCF.

In 2019 the Fellowship was awarded to Dr Zhi Ling (Joyce) Teo from the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Victoria.

Dr Teo’s research project is titled: “Characterising the molecular and immune landscapes of metastatic breast cancer using a rapid autopsy program.” The fellowship will provide $10,000 to help Dr Teo further her academic and professional goals.
