The Scottish Cancer Foundation Prize is an incredible honour that recognises excellence in cancer prevention and is awarded with up to £10,000 of funding. Dr Robb plans to use this to accelerate her research to help improve access to cancer screening and reduce the burden of cancer both locally and nationally.

Dr Robb commented: “I am delighted to be receiving this award and am very grateful to all the brilliant scientists and clinicians I have collaborated with who have supported this achievement.  The prize fund offers an exciting opportunity to accelerate the insights from behavioural science to reduce the burden of cancer locally, nationally and globally.”
