Jessica Kretzmann will soon be presenting her gene therapies for breast cancer research in front of 43 Nobel Prize winners in Germany.
Jessica is one of eight students selected from across Australia to present their research to past Nobel Prize winners at the 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting in June. They were selected by the Australian Academy of Science and the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
The Australian delegation will join 592 other scientists, all under the age of 35, to present their medical research to Nobel Laureates and their colleagues, exchange ideas and share experiences with other young researchers.
Jessica is currently completing her PhD in chemistry and nanotechnology at UWA and Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.
Her work involves developing a safe and efficient method to deliver gene therapies. In particular, her work focuses on the potential treatment of breast cancer with gene therapies.
Jessica has previously been awarded the Australia Nanotechnology Network Young Ambassador Award for 2015 and 2016, which allowed her to travel to rural schools and promote science and nanotechnology.
