Dr Jo Waller is the first recipient of the Cancer Research UK Jane Wardle Prevention and Early Diagnosis Prize, presented at an awards ceremony at the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Cancer Conference in Liverpool. The prize is given to those who have produced world-leading research in the field of prevention and early detection of cancer. Dr Waller’s team, based at UCL, carry out pioneering research on the public perception of cervical screening and HPV testing and vaccination. Dr Waller’s work has had a clear clinical impact on the Cervical Screening Programme in England and has helped to understand screening non-participation and ways that women can be supported to attend. The prize is named after pioneering researcher Professor Jane Wardle who died last year and will commemorate her life and career which has left an incredible legacy of research. This is the first year that the prize has been awarded.
