Current Board Members
Dr. Eckhardt is postdoctoral scientist with 20 years’ experience in translational breast cancer research.
His studies aim to investigate the reasons why certain breast cancers are more aggressive than others, why they spread (metastasize) to other organs and to identify new markers and targeted therapies for this disease. He has a specific interest in inflammatory breast cancer and has trained for the past 6 years with International leaders at The Morgan Welch Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Program and Clinic at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX, USA).
Dr. Eckhardt has recently returned to Australia to continue his research into IBC at The Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute.

Julie worked tirelessly to set up the foundation and made fantastic progress raising funds and awareness for IBC in Australia. Julie will be remembered fondly as a strong and driven woman. We will continue to build on the work she did in her honour.
