Mentor: Terri Shipp, M.S.
Terri Shipp shares a passion for science and the education of women affected by breast cancer. She was personally affected by the disease as a young woman and 12 years later was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. She holds a master’s degree in science in the field of electrical engineering and has actively attended many conferences and seminars on breast cancer.

Scientist: Vinton Cheng, M.D., Ph.D.
Vinton Cheng is an academic clinical lecturer at the University of Leeds and St James’s University Hospital, UK. He completed his DPhil at the University of Oxford, where he studied a molecularly targeted MRI contrast agent that was shown to improve detection of brain metastasis. Vinton enjoys working at the interface of different research disciplines and most recently spent a year working in the Focused Ultrasound group at the University of Virginia investigating how to enhance the immune response against brain metastasis. He is passionate about communicating science and collaborating with patients in the clinic to improve cancer care.
