Bazzaro

My mother had ovarian cancer—about 15 years ago. She had stage two and made it, she is living. Partly because of my mother’s cancer and because of the fact that, as a pharmaceutical chemist you always strive to find the molecule that one day will work on people, I found my passion for ovarian cancer research. Even though I don’t directly see patients, I work in close relation with their physicians to make sure they have the best treatment possible for their condition. Those interactions are a big part of what keeps me going.
