ACCF is proud to announce the launch of the biography of our Scientific Advisor, Professor Ian Frazer AC 

Prof. Ian Frazer has become a household name due to the amazing work he has done to reduce the chance of precious women across the world being diagnosed with the life threatening disease, cervical cancer.

The biography details the real story of this Scottish-born Australian of the Year, co-inventor of the HPV vaccine. Written by Madonna King, an award winning journalist, she tells of the ongoing struggle for funding cancer research, the herculean international legal battle waged to win the patent, the devastating loss of his friend and co researcher, Dr Jian Zhou, and Ian Frazer’s ongoing commitment to have the vaccine made available in the developing world.

The book is available to be purchased online here, and is available at most good bookstores.


A percentage of all proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation.
