Monash oncologist included in “Women in Sciences 2018 Book Collection”

Professor Eva Segelov has been included in the inaugural IntechOpen “Women in Sciences 2018 Book Collection”, celebrating and supporting women scientists worldwide.

Inclusion in the Collection was a highly competitive process, with only ten successful book topics and co-editors from almost 300 submissions.

Professor Segelov is Director of Oncology and Monash University and Monash Health.  Her book titled Molecular Understanding of Colorectal Cancer is currently available on the Open access platform for submissions for chapters from anyone in the world.

“As Editor, I am able to write the introductory chapter and one full chapter, which my PhD student Daphne Day, along with others in my lab group, will author, discussing our work studying ctDNA for colorectal cancer recurrence and monitoring,” Professor Segelov said.

“I then review all the chapter submissions and select those I want included in the book.”

Professor Segelov said she was very pleased to be included in the Collection given there was a competitive environment covering all aspects of science, not just medicine.

“Initiatives to support and focus attention on women in all fields of science are welcome, particularly with the recognition now of the importance of encouraging young women into STEM subjects at school and beyond,” Professor Segelov said.

IntechOpen CEO and co-founder Alex Lazinica said he applauded all women who submitted ideas on being proactive in their quest to publish.
