The Carolina Center for Public Service has presented UNC Lineberger’s Lisa Carey, MD, ScM, FASCO, with the Ned Brooks Award for Public Service.

Carey was recognized at the 25th annual University Public Service Awards ceremony April 5 for her distinguished and sustained record of service over the years to the university and the larger community through outstanding clinical and translational research and work in eradicating health disparities.

Carey is an internationally recognized breast cancer clinician-scientist who has treated North Carolinians with breast cancer for more than 20 years, and whose research has helped advance our understanding of how different molecular subtypes of breast cancer affect response to treatment and survival. She has designed and helped lead several notable national clinical studies that have changed the way we study and treat breast cancer.

She is the L. Richardson and Marilyn Jacobs Preyer Distinguished Professor for Breast Cancer Research at the UNC School of Medicine, deputy director of clinical sciences at UNC Lineberger and director of the UNC Lineberger Center for Triple Negative Breast Cancer.

Carey also serves in leadership roles with the most prominent cancer research organization in the United States, including the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and Susan G. Komen.
